THREE DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURE

The exposition takes a detour using the right hand to draw the left hand or vice-versa, studying it, cutting it out, this drawn hand can be employed by collaging onto the drawing, thus lending a meta-level ambiguity of the work, or the hand can be used as a metal-work sculpture or sculpt its own interior.
'Placing the hand flat on a sheet of paper a profile is drawn keeping the pen or pencil vertical. This is then studied and cut out and a hand drawn in all the different positions using this line so that a three-dimensional structure without volume is described (see illustration n114, page 231). Further experiments of this order are carried out with wire resulting in a sort of sculpture.' 10

One can notice a flat right hand superimposed on a flat left hand and with again a right hand in perspective which appears floating in front of the flat ones. This gives a meaning to "a three dimensional structure without volume".
