A chapter from the book A Natural History of The Senses by Diane Ackerman.
The chapter is divided into several sections:
The Feeling Bubble
Speaking of Touch
What Is A Touch?
The Code Senders
The Inner Climate
The Skin Has Eyes
Adventures In The Touch Dome
The Point of Pain
Select two sections that you respond to the most.
Create something in response to each of the two sections.
This “something” can be a small drawing done on any surface with any medium. Or you can “stage” a photo shoot and produce a digital image. A short, 30 second to 1 minute video is another idea. Other ideas include a small sculpture made from nature or found objects or a sound recording.
For each of the two sections you select, post the title header on your blog along with what you made in response and a short statement.
I uploaded a scanned copy of the chapter on LMS. Please be aware that any marks/notes in the scanned copy are not mine. I checked the book out of the Flagler library to scan.
