The article deals with the relation between body and its environment. According to the author the body is not only a centre of orientation, but also a factor of creative interaction. The role of the senses is analysed, drawing from the phenomenology of Husserl and Merleau-Ponty. On the background of Levinas ideas the body is conceived as the source of the ethical relationships between the inhabitants of the environment, which is parallely created by them. The body is interpreted in the context of phenomenological and hermeneutical cultural studies. The author raises the thesis that the body is implicit in the existential creation conceived as an interaction between us and our environment. The phenomenology of culture is conceived as an interaction between different existential layers (ethical, aesthetical, technical), where the body lays an important role. The theses, raised in the article, are illustrated by the examples from multi-layer art (e. g. films).
