Hands are able to convey many different feelings through a gesture. This gesture signifies the human experience of reaching out to another, as well as pushing away another. Throughout our lives, we experience the battle of reaching out and pushing away people.

During quarantine, the ability of physical touch has been lost. However, the ability of emotional touch is still intact. We emotionally use this hand gesture to signify what we would like from another. It is our choice whether to reach out or push away. Which do you choose?
