I am a video artist from Dublin and I’ve finally released the first video in my new project on hands. I am doing a series of video Hand Portraits. This first one is of “The Sound Editor” who sits in a suite and edits sounds on the TV shows lots of us watch every day. I adore hand mannerisms and this little series will hopefully show us some of the quirks and lovely hand gestures us individuals have without even realising it.

A presumably tongue-in-cheek homage to the iconic sword throne of Game of Thrones made from twenty scorched and melted keyboards by Mike DeWolfe, who explains:

The underlying message is one of suffering. The keyboards have been melted and warped. They’re made to twist to fit, but at the same time that renders them unuseable because they cannot fulfill their intended purpose. The keyboards are black and silver, and the underlying chair is white, but those colours have been replaced with black, in whole or in random splotches. The keyboard warping includes the scorching of almost all of the ESC keys to symbolize how impossible it can be escape suffering and blackness. The only key that is consciously left undamaged is the ESC key on the highest positioned keyboard. Around the back, the keyboard cables have been arranged like human hair with an attempt to braid the cables that is ultimately left in a tangle. This denotes how good plans and order can degenerate into chaos.

Now for yeh.
