Last week, I stumbles upon a field of hands on display at chashama 266 in Midtown.
Called Suggestion Mark, the exhibit is by Jennifer Grimyser. She explores the concept of verbal and non-verbal communication using hands that appear to be making signs similar to those in American Sign Language.
I never learned to sign because I don’t have any deaf friends or family and I’m not deaf myself. I do find it intriguing though, especially since most humans that communicate with words also use their hands to emphasize certain statements.
I wonder if these hands are actually forming a coherent statement…
