With these two hands

2017
United States of America

With these two hands is a video of Donald Trump’s hands during his presidential inauguration speech on the 20th of January 2017. Donald Trump is absent. The video is silent. All that remains are Trump’s two hands, cropped on a split screen that moves from left to right with every single gesticulation of his speech. With these two hands is a meditation on the haunting spectre everything these hands are capable of.
