Re: <nettime> talk to me about metaphors, part two


I will try to "forgive" you Vuk but why create yet another term to be lost in a galaxy of idiosyncratic classifiers? 

Like to name a star that is perfectly happy to be nameless?

I suggest you a term to grab from the celestial sky of academia: SEMIOPHOR by Krysztof Pomian

Objects taken from life and made into a symbol, a metaphor, by their museumification.

The search string "pomian museumification" will lead your way
