Title:

Body Gesture

Author: Ho Siu-Kee
Description:

Undergoing a long period of cultural cumulation and assimilation, the bodily gestures of human beings, already transcending the gestures of the other living creatures or animals in general, have developed into a considerably complicated system of signs and symbols.  While as a way of expression, human gestures are yet distinguished from other signs created by human beings themselves, such as images and texts, as they involve the perceptual experience of oneself.  Manipulating the gestural signs, no matter in a conscious or an unconscious sense, facilitates the consolidation of personal understanding and self-reflection.
