Abstinencia (democracia)

Cast bronze and etching
Variable dimensions, life-sized hands

Casts of the hands belonging to a number of anonymous people were made, in positions that communicate letters of the alphabet in deaf–mute sign language. Then, the hands were sequenced in such a way as to form different words, in an ironical expression of the ordinary person’s lack of any voice or social decision–making power with regard to key contemporary issues.
