work by the piece

The video shows my mother´s hand movements at work. She made 15 years of piecework, in a work station at an eyeglasses factory. The work processes of her hands and feet during work can be seen in an abstract form, without objects and machines. It´s hard to figure out what she´s doing right now. The movement of her hands is reminiscent of magical hand movements. She performs magic. (M.B.)
