Hand from Above

Chris O'Shea

NE1 Big Screen at Mounment, Newcastle upon Tyne

Saturday 18 August - Sunday 19 August


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 mischeviously unleashing a giant hand on the NE1 Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a giant deity.

Hand From Above is a joint co-commission between FACT: Foundation for Art & Creative Technology and Liverpool City Council for BBC Big Screen Liverpool and the Live Sites Network.
