Comment on My Life as a Severed Head

One of the most interesting dynamic exchanges between body and mind is the interplay between hand gestures and verbal articulation whereby the hands not only serve as emphasis and punctuation but also energize and interact with the thought process itself.

I find this a particularly interesting under-exposed art form because of the body's unconscious spontaneity which is perfectly synchronized with the thoughts taking shape in the moment..

Obviously there is a great deal of additional body language going on in human encounters, but in many instances the gestural communication aspires to the level of artistry.

According to Wikipedia, "Research has suggested that between 60 and 70 percent of all meaning is derived from nonverbal behavior."
