Concrete Semblance is an experimental and conceptual tautological meaning study book. An exploration of how cultural meaning is generated through abstracted popular signs and symbols; and how that meaning can be eroded by itself through sheer repetition via the very digital technologies that created it.


Once a cultural composition is created through layer of popular signs and symbols repetition occurs exponentially with each page. There is a point at which all meaning is removed, leaving only abstracted noise and marks. The technology has eroded its own observable sense making and continues to produce further abstractions on the same meaning plane but continuing in exponential repetition until no marks remain.
