Yet when, as by the gentle disentanglement of patient fingers, the ligaments of the corporeal life are unwound from about the soul, the latter, undestroyed, may still remain through its allotted day of endurance. From The Hasheesh Eater by Fitz Hugh Ludlow
Disentanglement of Patient Fingers is a video series is of women’s hands that have specifically chosen to intellectually, spiritually and emotionally help and serve others as their career choice. These eight different women have chosen careers that often times sacrifice their emotional well-being, relationships and life patterns. The videos were made during 20 minutes long individual sessions. The women were asked to create rituals and repetitive motions with materials to induce relaxation and trance. We are privileged to watch these women reveal self-care through their hands. Thank you to the women that participated in this project and thank you for your art form of service.
