Boris Hands

Merging Boris Johnson's April 2020 address to the nation.

May 2020 - online

A response to watching Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s address to the nation on May 10th, 2020. This was a moment when the seriousness of the situation threatened to overtake optimistic bluster but didn’t quite succeed.

I was struck by his hands, how they never stopped moving, so I put frames from the speech through an image merging algorithm to draw them out. A ghostly Johnson face was added as a transparency to top it off.

Compare to September 22nd.
