Object and Interpretation


Object and Interpretation

The in-depth transformation of the public space, translated into a replacement of facts and things with a system of interpretation, is what determines new relational experiences and new schemes of perception that are working within a register of shared appearances. Significances receive a value of their own, and the symbolic function becomes autonomous in relation with the referent. Out of this, a new subject-object/mass-merchandise dialectics is born: the significances we bestow on objects emerge inside fields of interaction, and objects are reproduced inside a code that is structuring the social corpus.

Keywords: object, symbol, appearance, perception, legitimization, semblance, reproducibility, code, image.
