About the Book

The Subject of Art in Process introduces the Analogos paradigm and syntagm into the public domain for the first time. It is a construct designed to assist (especially sensory-based) multi-practitioners in the process of lucid and layered thinking; hopefully, it can facilitate users to better understanding the complexities of event-processes. While semiotics generally ignores the 'subject', the Analogos foregrounds it as basic to all intra-active and interactive dialogue. While structuralism generally ignores the diachronic (temporal process), the Analogos foregrounds it and integrates it into the problematic of the synchronic, the domain of timeless stasis, still images.

The text also introduces into the public domain, if ever so slightly, the use of UFI (Uze'r Frendlee Inglish), a new notation system that is capable of carrying aspects of the vocal sounds of the speaker along with the meanings already possible when writing standard English. UFI introduces only two rules that are completely new: a dot after a vowel is pronounced as a long vowel sound (a-e-i-o-u as spoken when saying the alphabet); a slur or short-short vowel (written as an apostrophe, inside a word) is pronounced like the 'oo' in the word 'good' (in Canada). All the other basic 'roolz' are 'natural' to readers and writers of English; these are included in the Appendix-written in UFI. (See the preface for more; these are from there).
