Body gestures, body speaks by Jennifer Crupi
Jennifer Crupi‘s artwork addresses the ways we communicate with each other visually, through body language.
The handcrafted, interactive objects point out various gestures or postures and their associated meanings, in the hope viewers will realize the importance of how our bodies speak for us.
