Hand signals can be a form of communication through different gestures and signs. A simple wave is a gesture for greeting one another and is a regular form of saying hello throughout the world. Soldiers in the army are even taught basic hand signals to communicate to one another and gangsters have even formed their own gang signs over the years. Our task was to create the initials of our name using solely our hands. I had to create the letters J and D. Creating the letter D with a single hand was fairly difficult and I resorted to making a lower case d.
We then moved onto play-doh or “clay,” which we would have to engrave similarly to how Sumerian cuneiform were created to communicate to one another. Initially, we were only to use our fingers and hands to create the letters of our initials. What was beneficial of using play-doh was that despite making mistakes, we were able to fold together and create new canvas to start again. We were then given a paddle pop stick and other tools to create more detailed engravings, moving on from initials to our names and sentences, and finally trying to make a self portrait of ourselves. As expected, communicating using tools was much easier as you could be more detailed rather than using our fingers and hands.
