Matter lies like the skin, it moves between genres. Hand Smoothed by Coin is a collection of works that combine and intertwine to form an accumulative portrait of objects moving between art and design. The book presents material extracted from three events: Palimpsest by Fos (Nils Stærk gallery, 2018), After Palimpsest by OK-RM with Fos and Esther Theaker (Them Magazine Issue No.20, Winter 2018), Hands Smooth by Coins by Fos (Copenhagen Contemporary, 2019). The book is section sewn with an RGB gatefold at its core, presented in a silkscreened PVC jacket holding an 8pp concertina insert.
