The short film draws on the artist’s research into RAMM’s historic costume and fine art collections. Taking inspiration from the range of sleeves in paintings, prints, and fashion illustrations, this new work explores the infinite possibilities of non-verbal language through arm movement, with sleeves framing every gesture and communication.

Frears describes her process of creating the work as being "fascinated by arms and hands as communicative parts of the body… Sleeves have become arms moving in sleeves – arms that can signal and describe, push away, embrace, and even talk without words."
