Jeu de mains is an electronic game-installation for four players based on a black cotton dome held by a wireframe structure. The dome is pierced by four mouth-shaped holes where the players put their arm. The holes are the entrance of fist-sized galleries connected together in order to form a maze. Players facing each other must grab each other's hand while keeping their opponents to do so, helped only by their touch, sound feedbacks and a scoring board on a screen.
