“Exercises in Meditation on affected movements of the hands”
Winning Piece at the IX Edition of the ARCOmadrid/BEEP Electronic Art Prize (2014).

Video of 6’30” duration that uses time, passing in a linear way, to give form to an investigation into codes and connotations linked to gestures.

Using as a starting point a recording of hands of various professional dancers in movement and an example of 3D modelling software to replicate those movements and obtain the corresponding positioning and rotation data, the piece uses the theme of dance to reflect upon topics such as the phobia of Effeminacy and masculinisation.
