In WHISPERED monologue, hands appear with the absence of the fingertips to indicate loss of tactility.Pins spread across layouts and compositions to connect hands that are reaching towards or pushing away from one another. In between the pages, sewing occurs as an attempt to reattach the fragmented bodily parts. By linking and piercing the hands together with safety pins, straight pins, or threads, groups of forceful, temporary, yet straight-forward connections are constructed.
