Hand From Above

Chris O'Shea is an artist and designer, creating interactive work for both public institutions and private companies. He creates experiences that playfully challenge our perception of spaces and objects.

Hand From Above encourages us to question our normal routine when we often find ourselves rushing from one destination to another. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, we are reminded of mythical stories by mischievously unleashing a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. What if humans weren’t on top of the food chain? Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a giant deity.
Does this remind anyone else of The Kids in the Hall?
