Vancouver-based artist Karilynn Ming Ho uses the metaphor of phantom limb syndrome to explore themes of fragmented realities in a time when bombardment by digital information leaves many people feeling physically and mentally disconnected and disenchanted with reality. Set to the musical commissions of Paul Wittgenstein (a one-handed pianist), For the Left Hand Alone frames phantom pain as an unrequited longing, an incomplete figure, and the feeling of uncertainty in an increasingly disembodied world.
