Gestural Expression

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Gestural expression is a diffcult topic, not because the concept of a gesture is so diffcult, but because it looks so obvious that everybody believes to know what it means. This first impression is, however, misleading and it is there that the diffculty arises. The word “gesture” is like “time”: If your are not asked, what it means, you know, but if you are asked you cannot tell.
