Give ‘em the Finger!
1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a finger war. It could be like Celebrity Deathmatch but with fingers. (I’d buy ringside seats for Ronald McDonald vs. Spock.)
I can’t get over Italian artist Dito (“dito” is Italian for “finger” – not to be confused with “ditto” which is Boyfriend for “I love you, too”). While I think his finger portraits are plenty entertaining on their own, Dito is, in fact, trying to make a larger statement with his project – that in this technological age, the finger is the tool we hide behind – constructing public identities that at once free us to express our ideas, yet also allow us to hide behind a digital disguise.
