The Visible Hand, 2014, is a series of excerpts from political speeches featuring politicians discussing Free Market economic principles. Silent, and cropped in on the hands of each speaker, the imagery prompts the viewer towards associations of power and control—held by the individual politician, as well as those few who influence him. This dominant, singular legislative voice reveals itself as a far cry from the abstract social forces of Adam Smith.
