The hand project

This is a project I have "in my hands" right now. I want to stress the beauty and importance of our hands. What they express, how we talk through them (I move them a lot, all the time), how they type our keys, how they respond to our thoughts... How they bring us together. What we are and what they say of us.
This might be a long time running serie, I ain't sure. Later on into the project, I might ask you to take part in it. I hope you like the idea.

My hands

Hands of my husband

Este es un proyecto que me traigo "entre manos". Con esta idea quiero destacar la importancia y belleza de las manos. Todo lo que expresan, cómo hablamos con ellas (yo mucho, todo el rato), como teclean en nuestro ordenador, cómo obedecen a nuestros pensamientos... Cómo nos acercan a los demás. Lo que somos y lo que dicen de nosotros.
Esta es una serie a largo plazo y es posible que más adelante, quizá, cuando el proyecto esté más desarrollado, os pida a todos participar en él. Espero que os guste la idea.

Música hoy en el trabajo/Today's music at my work:
Pernice Bro, Benjamin Biolay, Original Soundtrack of Anton Corbijn's Control, Leonard Cohen...

I find your handproject awesome! I love the drawings, and can't wait to see what the hands bring me next :))

Marie-Louise said...

This with hands - it is actually interesting. Intend what we tend with our hands, caresses and comforts. And certain works so hard with their hands. My first thought when I saw your photos where that it is so big difference on a man's hand and a woman's hand… Hope that you can understand what I try to say.

Esti said...

marie louise, i know exactly what you mean.

fruenswerk, i'm sure many people is reading your blog, but it's so full of cool art and inspiration that you leave them speechless!!

more news on the hand project coming up at the beginning of next week!!

Kirti said...

you deserve it Esti, good for you. The hands project reminds me of something we did in first year at high school. Somewhere I still have the drawing I did.....I love to see your drawings each post.

Lucía said...

Esti, muchas gracias por el premio, ha sido toda una sorpresa. Lo que vas a encontrar hoy en mi blog es pura coincidencia, no ha tenido nada que ver con esto, ya lo tenía pensado, pero como estaba con los ejercicios espirituales no lo pude publicar antes. Ha sido telepatía.

Me gusta tu proyecto, ya tengo ganas de ver el resultado final.

Un fuerte abrazo.

I don't speak spanish and my english is bad, so I'm not sure to have very well understood your hand's project…
I have understood that you would like to collect some pictures of hands...
I sent two hands's photo, today, on my blog.
The first one is the hand of my younger son, Tristan, last summer, when he was one month.
The second one is tristan's hand again, with his great-grand mother.
