Abstract

Inseparably connected, hands and musical instruments, piano as a well-known traditional one in particular, have been prevalent in short videos nowadays. Piano itself has descended from aristocratic culture to a part of popular culture, in which creative works are produced and shared. The short video authors, however, tend to hide their identities in the camouflage of nick names or by covering their face. Hands at this time become a sign focused to generate expressive form in this art semiosis with piano, and interact with the short video text and receivers. Semiologists including Charles Peirce and Susanne Langer try to build a system made up of three or four branches, from the object to signs, from the interpretant to the expositor, separately or interactively studied as a continuum. Short videos as a frame, in which hand-associated works abode, and a sign at the same time give a window into fandom and youth subculture ecology as a macro-semiosis from a micro-semiosis perspective.
