Never Ending Per-form-ance

I painted hands. I painted a craft. The crafting of a piece does not last long, what remains are the objects we produce. But why look at craft in this hylomorphic way? What is with the activity behind the objects we create? Paul Klee wrote that ‘Form is the end, death. Form-giving is movement, -action. Form-giving is life. [1]. I have attempted to observe and manifest the memory and creativity of our dextrous hands by recording the never-ending per-Form-ance of two shape giving activities, crocheting and drawing, allowing them to interact and flow.
