The notion of body as apeiron – infinite and indefinite, limitless and without end. In the ‘potter’ verses of the Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam bodies are cups, jugs, bowls, vessels, gourds, touching, pouring, liquids, fluids, flowing, lips, hands, circles, cycles, spinning. Bodies are made of the clay of the earth, of the bodies of others, of eons of time. Resisting a defined corpus. Resisting representation and symbolism. Instead embodiment. It 'is' and not 'it stands in for'. Imagery of the body is alive. The body is infinite.
