Enchanted Object: “Unusual Handshake” By Amy Friedman and Gina Huang (2014)


Interacting with another persons hand is how we create relationships and begin conversations with new people, but what happens when there is no person to the hand? The hand has its own personality to tell a story but how do you interact with it? Would you trust this hand?

While being placed in a bathroom we were able to watch people interact and look weirdly upon what the hand was, they tried to touch it, and when they hit the right spot water would squirt out at them to their surprise. This hand is meant to be touched, examined and shaken, and in return you are surprised by a squirt gun as a way to leave the imaginary person in peace. But you interacted with a hand without a person, highlighting the persona human extremities contain on their own.
