Our hands (Series
Their agility and power, their anatomical complexity and mechanics are just amazing. We use them daily for dozens of actions without even thinking about it. We mistreat them, we impose them all sorts of cuts, broken nails, fractures, etc. But think one second about what you would make in a day, without your hands!
But our hands don’t only bring us the ability of touch or gripping that distinguishes us from animals. When we speak of expressions, we think about face. Eyes and mouth in particular. The hands also bring us a range of expressions, colors, used most often without realizing it. From love of a caress to the violence of a fist and compassion of an opened hand, it’s these expressions, especially what they evoke, that interests me here. A sort of tribute.
For all that they allow us to do, transmit, and what it can say, intentionally or not.
"Curiosity has this fantastic that it makes the questions more interesting than answers. They open doors to other worlds, other realities, inexhaustible sources of enrichment. If we had all the answers, life would be reality, without dreams, without theories, without research, without ... questions ! A very sad and monotonous life in short. The only interest in the answer is the development covered, and that it often brings other questions, leading us elsewhere, and finally, construct ourself. After all do we really want to know everything? Don't we prefer maintain a part of unknown that allows us to believe in something else ?"
