Listen to Your Hands

Listen to Your Hands explores our relationship with inanimate objects, like furniture. The drawers in Sanghyeok Lee’s desk are all connected on the inside by a single, empty space. Close a drawer too quickly and the sudden burst of air forces another drawer to pop out unexpectedly elsewhere. “It’s a form of dialogue through one of the most sensitive of human senses: touch,” says Lee. The desk makes people conscious of what they are doing with their hands. A gentle push to the drawer keeps the others in place, communicating the need to act with intention; we need to listen with our hands.
