Calligraphy was projected over the artists’ hands which wrote it, to form an “illuminated manuscript”. Calligraphy on either side of the hands presents a quote: "Hold me up to the light; you will see poems. Hold me in the dark; you will see light." From the poem “We Learned” by Erica Jong.
Artists’ note: This is a kind of self-portrait, my calligraphy being an expressive projection of my self, but here it's projected back over the hands that wrote it. I used a digital projector to beam slides of my calligraphy over my hands in an otherwise dark room and photographed the results.
