A Bright Hand in Darkness, Video 3:59, 2019

A Bright Hand in Darkness” is a video work based on Ursula LeGuin’s science fiction novel “The Left Hand of Darkness.” 

"When you make the two one,

and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside,

and the above like the below,

and when you make the male and the female one and the same,

so that the male not be male nor the female female;

and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye,

and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot,

and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom." - The Gospel of Thomas
