meditation: the body in bits and pieces

According to Sigmund Freud, our memories of others are incomplete. When we try to remember we can only glean the resonant details, a particular smell, a way of gesturing, a dermal texture, parts of the whole. What is left is the body in bits and pieces.

The negative, the scanner, the x-ray. These become visionary technologies that can jog memory, and at times exaggerate the parted nature of the whole.
