Entering the exhibition space you extend your arm, palms upturned towards the ceiling, and images are projected down onto them. Different images are projected on each palm, but when two hands are brought together, the two images interlock and a third image sequence begins.
This installation is based on research into new possibilities for collaborative dialogue between people operating computers with imaging devices. It clearly communicates a method for transitioning from the buttons, switches, mouse, keyboard, and other common mechanical interface in favor of the common-sense carrying device: the palm of your hand.
