The video projection To Hand. A Projection For The Palm addresses the perceptual processes of seeing and touching by making the relationships between artwork and viewer as well as presence and absence spatially tangible. Since the beamer does not project onto a screen nor a wall, its light only manifests itself when it strikes a moving body, or when the spectators use their own bodies as a screen. Thus the visibility of the video work is directly linked to the physical presence of a body in the space - to walking and seeing and searching for the image. To Hand. A Projection For The Palm shows the artist's moving hand trying to touch or grasp something absent. The interaction with the beamer's light rays creates a sensual, if only visual, contact between the viewer and the artist.
