I made Hand Game for an exhibition the other week. The starting point was thoughts about my awareness of my own body, and the correlation between location and body area. Over time it changed from being about bodies to focusing on hands. All the hands in this game were chosen from a bunch of 3-D scans downloaded from that 123D website I use a fair bit. It was set up in a bathroom, one of the locations I felt most in touch with my body, and was played by holding two gobs of Play-doh, which were of course able to be sculpted. I’m not making the game availible as I usually would, because of its site and controller specificness, but there is a version up for people who support my game making through Patreon 😉 😉 😉

There was also a publication given away at the show, and I included some hand drawings. In these I attempted to draw my hands as I pictured them without looking at them, mostly dictated by where I felt the most weight, if that makes sense. I’ve always meant to make drawings of how I perceive my body non-visually (for ten years, at least!) so it was about time I got round to it.

I also made this other game a week or so back that I like and other people like: Japan Game.
