Print, The Mind in the Hand
This is a Print. It was designed by Esther Knobel. We acquired it in 2016. Its medium is etching from embossed aluminum plate on white wove paper, perforated and stitched with iron thread. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Knobel’s 2006 etching, The Mind in the Hand, relates to a series of jewelry pieces and a 2007 book of the same name. The figures in the etching appear to be ensconced in some kind of a process, and Knobel’s book is centered on the role of craftsmanship.
