The museum curator's dream: "Touch tells you what you need to know"

By January 25, 2011No Comments

There must be a literature on touch somewhere. Someone must have recorded in a diary or a letter the fugitive moment of what they felt when they picked up a special object or touched another being. There must be a trace of their hands somewhere. Touch tells you what you need to know. It tells you about yourself.
