For media scholar Eugene Thacker, certain works of horror are designed to evince a quality of mediation between reality and paranormal worlds. Through these dark media, among Japanese Horror fictions and Lovecraftian stories, we witness glimpses of other worlds that cannot be totally captured by human sense, intellect, or reality.
Through Dextrous, I tried to develop a visual vocabulary that would convey a sense of meaning and spatiality that eluded decisive familiarity. The gloved cartoon hand is something that exists only in animated fiction, but when drawn without a body it becomes less cartoonish, and retains a sense of realism. Floating between our world and Its own, the glove is both authored and authorial.
