MR Hands.

This is an abstract representation of the human condition. I choose the hands because they are one of the most vital and important parts of our bodies. We only stood up straight and walked to free up our hands. Our hands metaphorically carry and lead us to places like the way it helps this “organism” to “walk”. The two hands are going at the opposite direction because human beings are dialectical animals whose existence and being arise out contradictions. The dualistic element of this organism symbolizes the notion that we are often driven by opposite drives and goals, with the yings and yangs pulling us in different directions. Yet it is this opposing pulling force and motion that allow us to march forward and advance physically and cognitively as species. I use cups because they hold water, and that water is an essential element in all of life.
