The body and the visual, an update.

After a few months to rest our eyes, SOS is currently planning its re-launch featuring more contemporary art, and updates from my video art work and research in Tangier. Stay tuned. But for now, a quick citation to get the ideas flowing…

“My body is the seat or rather the very actuality of the phenomenon of expression, and there the visual and auditory experiences, for example, are pregnant one with the other, and their expressive value is the ground of the antepredicative unity of the percieved world, and, through it, of verbal expression and intellectual significance. My body is the fabric into which all objects are woven, and it is, at least in relation to the perceived world, the general instrument of my ‘comprehension.’

— From Maurice Merleau-Ponty, The Phenomenology of Perception
