Some little sketches....

Here are some sketches I did a while back. The first one is an obvious bit of slapstick based on the notion of the Floating Signifier, a phrase coined by Structuralist and jeans maker, Claude Levi-Strauss. 

Floating signifiers '' represent an undetermined quantity of signification, in itself void of meaning and thus apt to receive any meaning".(see more here)



The second is one of my imaginings of the Kantian Noumenal Realm. Philosophical issues aside, I think it's probably a bit like Star Trek, where everyone from the parallel universe has EVIL MOUSTACHES.

Also, Claude Levi Strauss didn't really make jeans, but I thought he did for alot longer than I should have.

More to come soon(ish) I hope. Fingers crossed!
