Explore all your experience with just a touch. (Embodied practices)

The embodiment has become an important facet of thinking through emotional geographies. We should think about how we feel and we should also think through and through the bodies. The material of water experienced at the level of the body can open up an awareness of our social and spatial situation. This relational dynamics of emotions, where sensory engagement can mobilize a certain kind of emotional response as an ongoing process of experiencing and remembering places, spaces, people and landscapes. Immersion is formed by the continuous layering or addition of “to” the embodied experience, which in turn mobilizes a certain complexity of emotions.
