From the Body to the Book back to the Body
ECAL Thesis
From the Body to the Book back to the Body
At the very beginning - There‘s a fascination about books. There‘s no particular ingredient, either it catches you, or not. It‘s about perception and manipulation - in term of sense experience with the physical world. Can we manipulate perception into being a temporary reality? There‘s a fascination about the movements of the hands and overall postures, the language of gestures using the components of complex human communication. There‘s a fascination about the manipulation of the object of the book. The magnificent and intriguing adventure of the body manipulating the object which again shows the body. This double manipulation creates the very sensual artistic point of intersection which I want to treat in my thesis. Charly Chaplin once said in the final speech of The Great Dictator: „We think too much and feel too little“. Here is where I would like to begin, tracking the dynamic relationship of material and meaning.
