Abstract

This article is included in an issue of the journal Textile, which I co-edited with Penina Barnett. The psychoanalysis of the image specifies that sight is to be understood as integrated with other corporeal senses, which has generated much interest in the haptic, touch and the logic of skin, liminality and the tactile components of the gaze. This piece reprises the theoretical concerns of my article ‘On Stuff and Nonsense' (see RA2 entry 1) which explores the relationship between meaning and embodiment in Visual Culture. The themes of corporeal subjectivity developed in ‘The Thread of Attachment' are repeated in those developed by my essay ‘On Humming: Marion Milner's Contribution to the British Psychoanalytic Society' in Caldwell, L & Joyce, A., (eds) Winnicott and After.
