Gestures and body. Language on the Island
The body is a frontier between the outside world, which we perceive through our senses, and our very personal interior world, a system of signs through which human beings communicate with each other. The body, in fact, is a very powerful means of communication. This dissertation looks into the typical gestures used by Sicilians, investigating their attitudes and ways of communicating with other people. The project records interactions in the street, with people, using a camera, with patience and determination. Three different videos in the space focus on body language. Sound permeates the pictures, producing sound and voice landscapes.
Visual and sound perceptions travel in different directions.
