Body Language as an Art Form

by Hazel Chua

You can tell a lot about a person’s mood or disposition by observing his or her body language. For example, when a person’s pissed off or annoyed at you, then their arms are most likely crossed over their chest.

Aside from their moods, you can also surmise a few things about the person based on how they move. For example, dancers are usually more graceful in their movement and poses, like the dainty hand position you see below.

Wearable SculptureOf course, their hands get into position without the metal guide that you see above. That metallic thing you see, however, is a part of artist Jennifer Crupi’s series of wearable sculptures and it’s called “Ornamental Hands.” This and the other pieces in the series explore human nature and highlight communication by looking at a person’s body language and gestures.

My favorite would have to be the “Empathy Table.” It’s basically a table with indentations on the surface where two people sitting across each other would have to put their hands and arms in, to assume a position of empathy.

Which one’s your favorite?
