Commissioned for Rare Disease Day 2014, Hands consists of 2000 laser cut acrylic hands, each of which is engraved with the name of someone associated with one of the charities involved in the event.

The hands, hung from 514 individual suspension wires, are arranged in such a way that they snap together to form the event's logo when viewed from two specific positions. A single lightbulb hung in the centre of the piece throws shadows out into the surrounding environment, filling the space with shapes, colours and movement.

The piece was shown at The Science Museum before heading to its permanent home at Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Made in collaboration with Lisa Price.
