Hand From Above encourages us to question our typical routine when we time and again find ourselves rushing from one destination to another.
It is inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, that we are reminded of mythical stories by a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. The pedestrians that were passing by were tickled, stretched, flicked or entirely removed in real-time by a giant deity.
The idea was created by FACT: Foundation for Art & Creative Technology and Liverpool City Council for BBC Big Screen Liverpool and the Live Sites Network and realized by London artist Chris O’Shea. It was launched during the Abandon Normal Devices Festival.
