“Better Hands” is an interactive installation that explores the limits and the role of tools in the creative process. It questions the authorship by bringing the interface closer to the body, while giving to it its own agency. This work invites us to reflect on the effect of modern technology on the basic act of creation and whether we control or are defined by it.
