Codes of power : Dimensional semiotics and photonic perspectives

Codes of power are scripted into the dimensions we inhabit. Ingrained as perspectival constructs, they shape our perceptions of time and space and automate our relations within spheres of communication transfer. With this systemization, the human body relinquishes its power as a primary site of perspective. Instead, views of the world are filtered through the hegemonic codes of the physical empire. Today however, we are also witnesses to the induction of light as a new sphere of communication transfer. Here, the codes of power are concealed by their explicitness as they transpose themselves onto a new horizon of definition. Thus, the purpose of this text will be to expose the 'command lines' behind the codes by utilizing a series of perceptual inversions. The aim will be to provoke a new paradigm for understanding the codes of power as they rise with the dawn of the virtual empire.
