Displayed on an iPad, Descend shows a manicured hand performing the pinch-to-zoom gesture on the surface of glass. All touch- capacities of the device are switched off, so that the screen itself no longer responds to touch. As the hand rises in the video frame, it appears to descends into the physical iPad, inverting the surface of the device from a locus of receptive, responsive flatness to site of static depth.
