Inspiration #3: Spell of the Sensuous

Ruth Thomsen, Dot Lady (1983)

‘Perception…is precisely this reciprocity, the ongoing interchange between my body and the entities that surround it. It is a sort of silent conversation that I carry on with things, a continuous dialogue that unfolds far below my verbal awareness… Whenever I quiet the persistent chatter of words within my head, I find this silent and wordless dance always already going on – this improvised duet between my animal body and the fluid, breathing landscape that it inhabits.’

David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World
