a tientas

           The world's apprehension happens through touching (a tientas). I am interested in playing with sensorial touch and sensible touch. 
Braille is a form of writing that parts from touch; language responds to sensible and symbolic needs that can be expressed in diverse uncommon communication forms.

"Para entender esto tienes que tener tacto,
es como el arte."
(To understand this, there needs to be touch, it's like art.)

-"Puto" is Mexican slang for cowardice mostly.

"error de ded*" 
directly translates to "typo" 

"Corporeality is not a secondary experience; human existence is fundamentally a corporeal estate.
We touch objects and capture their essence before we are capable to speak about them.
Touch is the sense that integrates our experiences of the world and of ourselves; mi body reminds me of who I am and how i situate myself in the world."
