my attempt to explore sensation and meaning in movement. I will focus on individual and community reflections using and presenting movement in daily life.

In terms of "life", I am now trying to explore how the role of the body fits into it in the means by which humans have contact, understanding and influence over the world. The body belongs to the individual and is the gateway to the world for the individual. When we speak of self, we must turn to the body, which is necessary for understanding self and other. Human body follows a combination of rhythms. When we turn to unseen aspects of the body; emotion, intuition, kinesthesia and imagination becomes corporeal as we investigate.

Anyway, there are many ways to perceive the world and environment. The way in which the individual perceives the world has been one of the many perplexing questions of philosophy. And probably reading Maurice Merleau-Ponty on this period caused me to examine how to capture and visualize the role of body movement in life.

The expression is really good. Not so much movement in this one but the clenched fist speaks volumes.
