Handgst (or Orangepilled, or Sinister)

A giant knit orange hand, attached to the wearer's body by a blue sweater.

Thinking about agency, body dysmorphia, chronic illness, and slappy hands

This is a really fun piece. The hand is really stretchy, and satisfying to fling at other people.

I cranked this bad boy out in about a month, using a knitting machine to speed up the process.


I also left it out on a roof for a long time, so I'll put those pics below.

I was really happy with how it looked out there, but I left it for too long and it ended up freezing to the concrete!

It took a lot of hot water and yanking, but I was able to free her. Now, I gotta patch up some seams to wear her again :')
