Rebecca Horn

I've been thinking about some of Rebecca Horn's work.

   Mechanischer Körperfächer, Mechanical Body Fan, 1973-74

In her early works the body is frequently fitted with prosthetic extensions that allow the wearer to feel at a distance impossible for the natural body.  In her piece Finger Gloves, Horn describes the sensation of touching things at a distance as "sense-data." Again an artwork that delves into a material engagement of telematic sensation, a network of a few inches rather than the entire planet, but removed from direct contact all the same.
