Identity = language

It is the trimension of PATRA ("meaning" or "class" - it is impossible to truly translate this into english because it is a new concept for europe)

Dimensions of PATRA can be translated maybe as:

Letter - word - text - volume

or

Letter - name - nation - situation

And the negative dimensions:

Asemic - Abstraction .....  annihilation?




All writing falls into a relation with all other writing through the data accumulation and processing through the internet. Therefore it is not words but the formation of letters in dialogue with each other that identity is ultimately formed. Letters of course are of alphabets and languages known and unknown. In the process of being made and unmade.


So we can do a new applicatin of the DesaKalaPatraGraph (with each layer on a separate transparent sheet):


First we paint or produce on Desa layer :

Spacial mapping -= making maps to show our journeys


Second we make the Kala layer :

Abstract / non objective - graphs or temporal charts to show our movement through the time - eras or ages


Last we make the Patra layer:

Between Asemic and Letters - up to texts in different languages


And also we must make this in digital form - using the DKPgraph made by Lukas as a starting point for experimentation.


There will of course slippage between these layers and it is impossible to keep them truly separate. Some artists who have also used or are using a mix of texts, images, abstractions - which can inform DKPgraphy or advanced hypergraphy and metagraphy:
