TACTILE BODIES:

The tactile body measures information arising from physical interaction with its environment.  The body of the performer receives all the sensory input from the viewer’s energy.   The information travels between the viewer and the artist who is performing in the coexistent space and time, processing a conscious part of calculative data and preset ideas, with the notion of unconscious meditative inner concerns coupled with the intuitive impulse in a unique moment between invitation and discouragement.  The body is in a constant relationship with different physical experiences leading to the manifestation of the present moment.  

What does the somatosensory cortex of the brain do while the viewer is experiencing a live performance, a video performance or a written text?
