Memory and Touch: an exploration of textural communication

Memory and Touch: an exploration of textural communication. “touch cannot be in opposition to itself, can never be perceived as surface or source, but an acknowledgement that actual is mutual – a conjoining of two.”

Masayo Ave: Haptic touch panel – The Sound of Materials:
As babies we learn to define and refine our relationship with our surroundings through licking, touching, smelling, hearing and seeing, and throughout our lives we continue to experience the world through our senses.

Yet once we have acquired verbal language, we rarely acknowledge how much we understand through our textural awareness; there is an intimacy, a privacy surrounding our sensory experiences, their very bodily nature a potential source of embarrassment.

The more we attempt to control our environment and our interaction with the physical world through intellectual scrutiny of objects, and deny the fundamental importance of textural experience, the more we risk loosing that level of communication achieved through attention to the senses, for “to touch is also to be touched”. And as such always creates a dialogue, a communication both before and beyond text.

It is possible to touch colour in a sense, because very bright red will work on expectation and somehow the colour will bring some warmth. Some people see cloth through the sound it makes, the sound when people are walking and the cloth moves against the skin; expensive textiles especially make a more beautiful sound, and that there is very often an erotic connection to the sound of certain textiles.
