Statement: Lost Language

A written ‘Lost Language’, a series of repeatable structures with a consistent meaning. These do not really qualify; yet. If these structures had real meaning they may be profound or prosaic, as you will. It is an easy trip down the ‘rabbit hole’ to semiotics or even structuralism, if you were that sort of person, but that sort of thinking, to parrot Oscar Wilde, may “take too many evenings.” Long ago at school I had an interest in runes, in cuneiform, in the Rosetta Stone, and in the development of writing, of signs, linguistics. Studies of Barthes and Semiotics and Lévi-Straus and Structuralism continue to influence my thinking, but I don’t like to project too many words on a photograph. A photograph like a language may “wound or seduce” without further explanation.
