Works and the comfort of the non-human

Works are myths. The album, the song, the piece, the performance, the film, the book. Humans are frail, fragile, unpredictable, so often in disappointing ways. Works comfort and coddle us, so often in extremely pleasing ways. They opppose human friction with quasi-human symmetry.

Myths are based on a transcendental condition; a non-contextual, essential, ingredient.

Inscription – the process by which works are represented/mediated/signified in the mind of the audience – is a process of myth creation.
