Cellu(h)er Resistance: The Body with/out organs?

Feb 27th to March 2, 2008

After decades of dis-ease, poverty, disability and being surgically reconfigured through surgery, my
hands make another body for my body.... there are sounds, images, becomings. It is accomplished the
moment I undertake it. It isn’t the case that the body/I like(s) pain per se but rather that the body/I like
being a Body with/out Organs and pain is the price the body/I is/am willing to pay for that.
