This piece consists of 206 unique cast glass hands in vibrant colors. The number of hands equals the number of beds in the recently opened Helen DeVos Children's Hospital where I work as a pediatric radiologist. My intent is to both quantify and personalize the degree of need of the children in the hospital as they reach out for help. The original mold was made from my daughter's left hand. Each glass hand has a unique shape in the palm illustrating how experiences shape us and make us who we are.
