To write the word UnderLine you need a point and make some lines with your hand.

To utter the word UnderLine we need a set of sounds coming out of our mouths. But some people are not very talkative or outspoken. Besides, what happens when we’re rendered speechless?

If we remove the Line from the word Under(Line), we can use it to draw in space, hint at shapes, textures, exaggerate movements, define directions or paths to different places, ask the world questions, and eventually grow.

In these travels, the body also has a word to say. Full of bones, tendons and muscles, it  experiences the here and now.
