A meditative study of the human hand. Coupled with our intelligence it serves as the genesis of success as a species and the ability to destroy ourselves.
"SOFTWARE departs from a familiar subject, i.e., parts of a human body, and proceeds through a process of defamiliarization. The use of the cinematic convention of the close-up elaborates on the Formalists' notion that the strength of cinema as art is based in part on a pictorial forming of details and on a disordering which cannot be predicted."
