Multimedia artist Nico Baixas performs and digitally manipulates his own captures to create moving hand art. The resulting effect is a fluidly moving video consisting of nothing but frivolously moving hands and fingers. Because the images are edited to seem symmetrical and geometric, the images look kaleidoscopic. The black background and white moving images have a hauntingly captivating effect.

This video uniquely combines performance, visual arts and video production. It is interesting to think that such a wide range of shapes can be created using snippets of just one subject -- human hands. Digital editing has enabled us to create a fascinating images using clips of anything and everything. Baixas says his possibilites are limitless.
