Hand To Hand - a complicated meeting of fingersThis Exhibition resulted from a Meeting And Greeting Game.

The players were invited to move around,  each time they met another player they created a hand-greeting repeating this three times until both partners are happy with the hand-greeting created.

Both players must contribute equally to the greeting (that is, the greeting does not reveal one active player and one passive player).

This was the original hand greeting game. It was finally so successful that people were invited to have their 'Greeting' photographed and a selection of these were mounted and exhibited under the title 'Hand To Hand' as part of the Games of Art.
