Logic and Process of Representation
Representation is a human behavior whereby an artifact is created that embodies or resembles other things. Consider objects made in the likeness of animals, people, celestial phenomena.
Representation is the betrayal of awareness of experience. By engaging in representation, you select aspects of your experience for transmutation into a different medium.
The Case of Re-mediation
You could call it re-mediation, the transmutation of the essence of a medium or aspect of Reality onto another medium. By remediation you make a sense of the original medium available in a different medium.
The Case of Mimesis
Mimesis is the reenactment in behavior of selected aspects of your experience. There’s a sense of replication, echo, or reverberation of the original onto surroundings.
Dialogue with Awareness
If you can represent aspects of your experience in media, that betrays you possess awareness of your experience.
