Artist Elena Cremona has been facetiming family, friends and strangers; directing their hands through the screen for her to capture. This series is a way of continuing her exploration of hands as symbols of tenderness and connection through quarantine…

“The affection of friends, family & the collective embrace of a rave is what I’ve missed most. In the everyday passage of movement between people there is an aversion of the eyes as the bodies brush past one another, now however, there is no body contact but a clear understanding with the gaze. Post Covid-19 we’ll be engaging with one another in a different way.” — Luke Farley (hands featured below).
