My actions and desires are like lines and planes. They are bodies – they are my body, as it lives and breathes. The idea of the body as a vacant shell, a tabula rasa into which discourse writes itself forgets that the materiality of the body is not merely a mould, but its very precondition. It is not merely the site of its occupation, but the protagonist. The hidden, contingent actions of the body are beyond semantic comprehension and can be understood only by means of a material thinking. Only through a grammar of the body is it possible to experience these actions.
