BEYOND THE SKIN OF AN ENVELOPE THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING DEEPER
A WORLD TO LIVE IN, A CHANCE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO STEP IN.
The space, the room is the place where the sense of self and the sense of belonging first develop. What happens, in close contact with each of us, can be perceived as an accidental circumstance, but we can also allow it to come up to us, to involve us, to cross us integrally, so much as to solicit emotions, thoughts and deep psychophysical reactions, and thus suggest new points of view and stimulate unexpected moments.
I consider an immeasurable resource the activity of all those who professionally devote themselves to making the inhabited space truly human and liveable and in particular "domestic", in its tangible and interior dimension.
It is a matter of giving a precious opportunity to those who live in those places, to "see the invisible", to savour the taste of feeling "at home" fully expressing oneself, to give space to one's own intimate affective - family world, opening up to welcome and share one's refuge with the rest of the World.
An architecture of matter and texture strives for a " poetry of revelation”
I'm not in front of my body, but I am in my body, or better I am my body.
The spatial nature of the body is accomplished in the action.
If we consider the body in movement, it becomes clearer how it dwells in the space and time, because the movement is not satisfied with being subjected to space and time, but it actively incorporates them, takes them back in their original meaning which disappears, in the banality of the established situations.
The body cannot be compared to the physical object but to the work of art.
The gesture and the word transform the body...
It's the body that shows, it's the body that talks...
Whether it is someone else's body or my own body, I have only one way to know the human body: to live it, which is to make the pain crossing it my own pain and to confuse myself with it.
I am therefore my body at least to the extent that I have an experience.
Man as a living, sensory body is a whole of functions, an interplay of vision and movement... he watches but he can also observe himself and recognize the other side of his visual power in what he sees ... He sees himself as able to see, he touches himself as able to touch, he is visible and responsive to himself.
Maurice Merleau Ponty
