Shekinah (2016) comprises a series of interactive biometric portraits, based on the unique variation of the human hand.

Capturing the negative space between an individual’s thumb and index fingers, each Shekinah represents the legacy of life itself: all that a person might do, touch, and create in his or her time on earth.

Whether thrown by celebrities and fans as the diamond or theorized as masonic symbol, this simple hand gesture is diffuse throughout society. The symbol has older origins as the Hebrew nesiat kapayim, a ritual element of the priestly blessing.
