The Greeting Series

The Greeting Series came about as part of my research into bodily habits and routines. The work in this series centers on the gesture of the handshake as a starting point for inquiry and critique. In each piece I use clay as an interface to mediate the handshake gesture. By introducing this unusual material at the point of contact between bodies I hoped to open up the participants’ experience of the handshake beyond the normative act and have it lead into personal introspection about the gestures we inherit.
