Gesture questions empathy and is inspired by the Buddhist prayer wheel practice. This altar-like podium is dressed in the old letters - the shadows of relationships long lost. By spinning it, a viewer awakens a presence of another, whose hand approaches the viewer, until both are stroking each other, suddenly engaged in compassionate gesture of their own.
