Matter in Hand

Mixed Media; Part of Group Exhibitions @ CERN and 2019 Open House Exhibition Laundry Services

Hands of an antimatter expert explaining this hard-to-grasp topic, thus taking the matter in hand. On one hand, he uses the hand, a very basic part of the human body that is used excessively and universally for communication and all sorts of other processes in our daily life, to explain a topic that is so remote for a non-expert. On the other hand, there is always the question: do we really understand, or see through?  Or do we just create more questions for every thing we seem to grasp? Do we create antimatter for every matter we take in hand?
