Henri & Henri on Movement 

People make gestures: they gesticulate. —Henri Lefebvre, Rhythmanalysis & It follows that sight and touch could not have given us the idea of space without the help of the "muscular sense."

They’d Draw on Anything… 

Was just watching this great clip on the beginnings of visual thinking. Of course, I think that, like most, he over emphasizes the visual element, rather than thinking of it as a spatial and moving set of processes. But that's for another day...
