1. Locate an object in the space, it could be a pebble, a fleck of loose paint or even a fingernail or perhaps something larger. Don't tell me what it is but what it feels like when you touch it. Is it warm, cool, soft, sharp, smooth, dry or rough?
2. Now, try to look at the object from all sides. Where is it thin? Where is it thick? Where is it delicate or strong? Where would it easily break?
3. Now, examine the object for texture, ride the texture with your eyes for as long as you can. Now, make a trace that describes the texture on this page. How did the tracing move your vision? How did your vision move your tracing?
4. Now, treat the form or texture that you felt with your eyes as if it were a script for a different kind of movement and perform it. What did you move? How did you move?
5. Now, take the object and run it against a surface while holding it. Pay attention to the sound, the friction, resistance and vibration that this generates. Please describe what do you notice:
6. Now, verbally sound out your visual movement with the object, as closely and as carefully as possible. First, sound out the same visual path that you made over it in question three. Please briefly describe how you used vocal dynamics to sound the spatial patterns and textures of the object: i.e. pitch, limits of vocal register, spatial references (trajectory), volume, dynamic modulation, semantics of language or style.
7. Now, vocally sound out the object's density. How is the vocal profile that you used to sound visual path and density different?
8. Now, sound out the outline. How is the vocal profile that you used to sound visual path and density different from texture?
