Hands of various people use their smartphones. The displays don’t show any app – only the sensual movements of the hands count. Each pair of hands plays both roles from Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” at the Sistine Chapel: God father and Adam, whos fingers touch each other. Smartphones are the new saints to which we cling and who guide us on our ways – they are the amulets of our time.
This short version is for all sorts of screenings, from very small (e.g. in a smartphone) to larger monitors or cinema screens.
