Inspiration Session: I=F(O)

I=f(O) – identity is a function of otherness – is my most ambitious formula to date, taking us straight into the deep beauty structure of semiosis, where sign production is abstracted to a relational process between forms. CS Peirce taught us that man itself is a sign. He also taught us that the dicisign – or proposition – is the most quintessential of signs. I=f(O) attempts to uncover the proposition of man – and beyond.

Reminiscent of Rimbaud’s “Je est un autre” but surpassing the poetic with more clarity I=f(O) attains a level where forms come to life through their (activated) relation to other forms. True signs in actu. Repeating patterns – or habits – of position and directionality – or sense.

Key Take-Aways:

  • The presentation offers practitioners an approach to code and decode both the innen- and umwelt. – deal with positioning – deal with the directionality of sense
