A moving black rectangle which perpetually covers the image of a running body: The "body" as the fastest runner of a womens's 100m hurdles can no longer be seen in this footage after the re-visualization process. Is it possible to re-define the body as a process? Does it make any sense observing the sensations when the mind is moving or does this resemble a phantom pain, the perception that an individual experiences relating to a limb or an organ that is not physically part of the body?
