Two pre-futurist bodies perform the reinvention of ›the touch‹. They are coming from the beginning of geometry, just before the age of meaning. Their task is reconditioning everyday tactile actions. Sanding paper suits are connected to a voice processer through contact microphones, amplifying and distorting movements of touch. They are happening in the gap between sound and image, as well as in the gap between action and purpose.
