Hapticity

As I do some final revisions on the Corporeal poetry mss., I’m drawing haptics, reading Laura U. Marks’ book, Touch: Sensuous Theory and Multisensory Media (also interested in her ideas of haptic criticism, as well), and also reading William Bogard on haptic control. Touch, fleshiness, sight, optics, feeling, the ability to control feeling…etc. I’m freakin’ fascinated by all this.
