The series " My Hand is on You " was born out of the touch in the playing tag we played when we were child, the naturalness and sincerity of the touch action in childhood. As time progresses and age increases, the impact of social phenomena on childhood and adulthood makes itself felt in the lack of this toolless, simple contact game. Adulthood comes with the constant need to catch up things at a distance and tag. But it is different from the pure enthusiasm of mere contact in the game of playing tag. Most of us do not even realize that the sincerity of childhood and the act of touching, which came from within, have disappeared as our adult lives get away and lonely due to individualization and increasing distances. This effect of time makes itself felt as a trace in the hand, which is the tool of the action, in the series "My Hand is on You". It reminds how close and different we are actually to each other. It reminds of another touch that has come out of our lives.
