"Kino-gait is relational in that it allows one to completely enter the negative space that is created by the other's body."

"Kino-gait is relational in that it allows one to completely enter the negative space that is created by the other's body in passage."

"Kino-gait is relational in that it allows one to navigate the moebius flip between vision and gesture, to completely enter the negative space that is created by the other's body in passage."

{Completely?}

(in a technical-hypothetical sense, yes, but in a deeper ontogenetic sense, probably not. consider this more carefully.)

"There can never be a complete closure between the one and the other, however, in assuming gesture through kino-gait. The incipience of a movement (cf. Massumi, Manning) will always precede some form of material lag time (nerve conductivity, electromagnetic interface, state censorship) that precludes the possibility for the subject of the gesture to ever be fully captured."

{Captured? Expressed? Described?}

(captured, to follow earlier work on docile bodies and docile identities, when the discipline-prison becomes the discipline-avatar in the societies of control.)
