Peripherals consists of two works of the same title. A suite of hand-sized sculptures (aluminium, silicone, black glass and scented soap), cast from objects used for work and play, are activated in the accompanying video. The objects are used to explore the materiality of so-called immaterial or precarious labour, with a voiceover delivered by a blogging, part-time hand model. The hand model describes the labour involved in the construction of an image, the role of her body in accessing feeling and memory, and articulates a certain slippage between person and object.
