About the Commission

Comprising of translucent fabric panels draped across sculpted copper hooks, Flimsy Signals borrows movements of the buildings inhabitants and flows around the architecture of the space. Images of textured hands shift across lightweight animation frames creating gestures that unfold across the walls. These moving hands act out basic forms of non-verbal exchange and ambiguous communication.

The work has three versions of printed panels – a variety of seasons presenting different movements, surfaces and tones – that will be installed on rotation. Flimsy Signals joins the community of Cornerblock inhabitants, using and moving through the building alongside them.
