Hands of various people use their smartphones. The displays don’t show any app – only the sensual movements of the hands count. Each pair of hands plays both roles from Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” at the Sistine Chapel: Godfather and Adam, whose fingers touch each other. Smartphones are the new saints to which we cling. They guide us on our ways and keep us in contact with human beings elsewhere. They are the amulets of our time.
