I’m starting Spring Semester by examining the physical interpretation of ‘connection,’ and I can’t think of a more appropriate subject than the human hand. Our hands connect us to each other and the world around us. We use our hands to explore, create, and communicate. A simple hand gesture can express excitement, approval, or rage. The touch of a hand can deliver pleasure, comfort, or pain. The more I think about it, the more I am amazed by the incredible, versatile hand.
