<p>THE DOWNLOAD LINK WILL GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR OWN EMAIL.</p> <p><strong><br></strong></p> <p>This free to download artwork on Daata Editions, coincides with Toby Ziegler's Freud Museum exhibition The Genesis Speech, comprises a sequence of still and moving images on two screens generated using Russian search engine ‘Yandex', and a score made by the artist in collaboration with Richard Russell.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p>The top screen displays a slowly shifting sequence of eclectic representations of the hand, including Napoleon’s sceptre The Hand of Justice, a design for a futuristic prosthetic arm said to outperform the real thing and the dismembered hand from Evil Dead 2 which is reanimated and attempts to kill its former owner. The bottom screen shows a rapidly accelerating succession of tangental images deemed to be ‘visually similar‘ by a reverse image search, tightly synced to the soundtrack.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p>The result is a sort of visual Chinese whispers in which unexpected visual echoes and poetic possibilities for meaning arise.</p>
