What is the essence of the work and how can it be represented? To investigate this question, I got into the car with a 4x5 meter black Molino fabric and visited familiar, working people in my place of residence. Important was the symbolism. The typical sleeves of a mayor's suit, the work clothes of a chimney sweep or the typical gesture of a relevant task. I had to face difficulties concerning the time-consuming implementation and the close relationships with these people. I had to get into the workplace of the protagonists, letting their hands stick through two holes in the Molino and asking them to show their hands as authentically as possible in a way that was typical of the profession. It was absolutely necessary that the hands should be fresh from work, with real blood, real soot and nail stick. For years or just now. Hands tell us their story.
