Hand From Above

Hand From Above encourages people to question their normal routine instead of allowing themselves to simply rush from one destination to another. Passers-by will be playfully transformed by a giant hand from an urban screen. Unsuspecting pedestrians will be randomly tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a digital deity. Actions change depending on how crowded the scene is or weather conditions. Originally commissioned by the Abandon Normal Devices festival.
