Gold Hands

Gold Hands was a collaboration between Faith Johnson and myself presented for Performance Over Indulgence, at Firehouse 13 in Providence RI in 2008. Faith Johnson and I dressed identically in black smocks and gold leafed each other’s hands. We then offered to transform the hands of the audience by applying a choice of techniques in which to illuminate their skin with golden body paint, powder, glitter and sequins. Our intent was to emphasize the hands and elevate awareness of their importance both visually and symbolically through embellishment.
