"In this series of 24 films (a unique film for each day of the exhibition), Jakob applies the principles of Facial Poetics (an earlier work exploring communication through facial expressions) to a study of superstition and astrology. 'An Arrangement of Gestures...' includes drawings and charts illustrating the artist's own pseudo astrological codes, inviting the viewer to decipher seemingly random actions and extract meaning from subtle gestures."
