Mirror, Signal

Mirror, Signal Emerging from the dark, hands glow with light, like shadowy X-rays. Even perfect vision is a series of blurred impressions, and only that which we pay attention to is really in focus - and so hands move in and out of clarity, dragging their shapes into abstract form. Sometimes they appear to have too many fingers, or not enough. Sometimes they writhe and resemble ghostly winds. What is signed can only be fleetingly grasped, for what hands really express and betray are our inner feelings.
