When Henry David Thoreau writes that: 'We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones', he attests how the body and expression are intrinsically linked. Bodies become not only a central subject, but a way in which we see and talk about other things. Bodies are not only created, but perform, communicate and create.
