This is my first piece of art that incorporates the language I use on a daily basis, and the fun thing about American Sign Language is how one handshape, and even one movement can mean so many things in different contexts.

This involves the handshapes X and C, done on both hands.  It can be read as FRIEND, HEARTBREAK, DISCONNECTED, CONFUSING, and/or COMPLICATED.  If it feels dark, good.  If it feels hopeful...well, there was some of that in the construction as well.

The hands are connected by soundwaves (manipulated to fit the picture)
