One of the fundamental human capacities is the tactile perception of the world. The haptic perception which includes the understanding of what we touch requires an active exploration, by body movement. The conscious touching and its relationship with absence and presence. When touching something we become something larger than ourselves, then where do we end?
Are the world surrounding matters of the world temporary exoskeletons? And would this perception affect the way we relate to other subjects/objects? Can these daily actions of touching become more mindful and caring? Can we reconsider the relevance of the body as the main medium to correlate? Bodies are more important than words, bodies speak directly.
Patricia is interested in exploring the notion of presence and absence – and how it relates to the act of touching. When you touch something, you touch something larger than yourself. How do/can we touch – mindfully, carelessly? When is a body absent, when is it present? Elena Azzedin
