Ode to your hand is a hardcover bound book made of high-tech foils and paper. The individual pages consist of transparent foils, which are framed by a fine paper edge. As soon as several overlap, they begin to reflect the viewer and surroundings. The cover made of soft white paper wears off with use. This is in contrast to the foils that are supposed to last for thousands of years. The book is readable from both sides and has a rainbow-coloured headband.
