Tarryn Handcock Collected Fragments


TarrynHandcock_fingers interaction1

These wearable artefacts incorporate fingers cast from many hands. ‘Second skins’ made from the body casts are reconfigured into strings that represent a hybridised, collective identity, defamiliarising ways of wearing ‘things that fit’ an individual body.

Presented in interactive contexts, these prosthetics propose questions around who made to measure pieces are made for (and by whom), how pieces that don’t quite ‘fit’ might be worn, and the ways that we can discover this information.
