With “Hands” embroidery I seek to integrate the digital world into fabrics by translating it into elements tinged with novelty and nostalgia. Emoji hands are emerging languages that compete with our own language. The underlying question is how current technologies connect and disconnect us at the same time in a broad-spectrum.  My intention with the “hands” embroidery, is to make physical and tactile the way we communicate.
