The video: 'BODY OF LIGHT'

Paola Beatrice Ortolani [Italy] - 11th edition
Body is the seat of emotions, which is why it’s often represented in art. In cinema, light shapes the body, giving it a shape and a meaning. While according to the patriarchal and Puritan ideology the body was considered a symbol of sin, today it is commonly estimated as a vehicle of emotions and pleasure. The traditional Cartesian dichotomy between res extensa (the body) and res cogitans (the mind), according to which the body is subjected to the mind, is instead outdated, in favor of their reciprocity.
