theory of perception

Our own body is in the world as the heart is in the organism. Our own body keeps the visible spectacle constantly alive. Our body breathes life into what we see.
It's a system.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty

  5. a system where we find balance in contrast and compliment, nature and imitation, focus and reflection. the cloth journal brings this to the center. the colors are what lays outside under the snow waiting for the sun - but it's all there.

    "our own body keeps the visible spectacle constantly alive" - what poetry! I like the way the pictures go from inner world to outer world to the window between the worlds, making the words come alive with your images.
