‘When the hand plays truant’

A project of people with hands

Communicating real life accounts of people without hands

To explore the importance of hands.

Designers in the 21st century associate, and are associated with, the ‘tools’ of Apple Mac computers and Adobe software. In an article introducing creative think tank: ‘Be Open’ written by  Wallpaper* magazine, the hands are deemed “the unsung heroes of creativity”. Central to this article is the idea that “hands are the vital instrument behind creativity and success.” (Wallpaper*, 2014) This project is a creative exploration into the importance of hands in the design process.
