We are all subjects of discourse. It is created in systems and institutions where we as subjects are produced through regulatory practices. We are controlled by discourse because it governs what we say and do and at what time we can speak about it. We can never not be in discourse and it changes over time similar to our time changing.
The signifier is the first part of a sign It usually the image of the object we are representing. For example an image of a dog.
Signified is the second part of a sign. It is arbitrary in the sense that it can change. For example, dog or puppy are words used to described an image of a dog.
Signs are broadly known within society we live in so we can conclude that signs are linguistic. There are images and ideas that are similar over a range of societies (English, Canadian, French) that allow us to identify them in the same way.
Example - Wi-Fi, car, dog

Ethos appeals to "ego", authority of knowledge. Usually an expert or trusted person who seems informed.
Logos is based on logic, prove through proof of facts. It is the presentation of the facts.
Pathos appeals to emotions, for example fear.
Example - Dr. Oz, advertisements

Language can be used two ways: Living and dead.
Living language requires dialogue and exchange. It depicts the actual lives we live in as well as the imaginary.
Dead language is the oppressive language and unyielding. It allows those using this language to maintain power over those who believe dead language is the correct language.
Example - Politics, poetry, social media

"I work in a purely abstract aesthetic. I often employ a subtle color value and reductive, “barely there” visual texture. Blurred lines, faded marks and out-of-focus images act as an illegible penmanship, casting a slight confusion over the experience of looking. The human need for understanding leads to an effort at translation. The encounter becomes an occasion of interpretation, requiring creativity and a willingness to be puzzled. I want the viewer to approach the work with an unbalance that forces openness of mind. I seek to spark your curiosity and then gain your attention, like a brief whisper that requires intense focus in order to receive its meaning." -Jesse Max Otero .

Hindsight is Always 20/20 by #RLukeDuBois examines the history of American political discourse through the metaphor of vision. Drawing from the annual State of the Union (SOTU) addresses given by Presidents to Congress, 'Hindsight' consists of a single Snellen-style eye chart for each president who gave #SOTU addresses. Instead of the typical characters present in an eye chart, the piece employs words drawn from their speeches, presented in order of most frequent (top line) to least frequent (bottom line) word. The result is a startlingly clear snapshot of the lexicon of each presidency, containing a mix of historically topical keywords and rhetoric unique to each #president and the time period in which they served in office. #algorithm#history#language
#Nanook from #Greenland is one of my favorite bands and @Frederik_elsner on vocals is amazing. He just came out with a solo album and I'm totally digging it. Even though they Speak Danish and English they deliberately choose to sing only in Greenlandic. Half of their fans don't even understand what they are saying since Greenlandic is only spoken by about 60,000 people in the world. Check them out! Follow his page! Buy their music!
I dont know son personally but we throwing a party whenever he gets free!! Owwww #maxb#wavycrockett ..if You wasnt bumping his sh!t everyday in 09 before he went in we probably dont speak the same #language

"Language, as a tool to clarify and articulate our experiences, often fails to capture the intangibly specific nuances and emotions behind our words. As such, to communicate carries with it the paradox of both understanding and failure to understand. The works presented play with this ambiguity by merging personal and cultural histories with abstract forms in order to both dissociate experiences from the artists while giving deeper insight into those motives that are lost in communication. This synthesizing process becomes a kind of archeology of expression, bringing us closer to that moment before definition where the base components of feeling begin to form. In translation from feeling to work, a base artistic language is exposed."
