The video documents a performance from the perspective of the performer, in which the performer sews the fingers of her left hand together using a sewing needle and white thread. The gesture is confident - deliberate in it’s dysfunction. A subtle audio track reveals the sounds of the body action and the performance tools. From the project childish objects.
