Where to find a 'matter' articulable ad infinitum?
Any materiality is likely, theoretically, to articulate significances. Thus, differently modulated smoke can translate different significances. Only with the smoke system the field of the possible is very quickly exhausted. And if one tries to extend it, it quickly becomes incredibly complicated. Thus, theoretically, a very great amount of materiality would be necessary, the articulatory possibilities of each one supplementing the limits of the other. The complication would simply increase.
The ideal would be a single materiality, indefinitely articulable, easy to handle, the most immediately available, the most immediately accessible. In short, a materiality which functions with a maximum of economy. Where can such a materiality be found?
What about finding such a materiality in what man is himself, in his body? And what, in the body, is articulable at will and always available? Aren't these bodily expressions, manual gestures as well as facial mimicry all immediately expressive of significances? But in this immediacy lies still an immense obstacle. The significance is there still too captive of the materiality with its individual characteristics and, therefore, cannot yet be really open to an indefinite signifying possibility. The sign remains prisoner of the body characteristics with its sexual, racial, cultural varieties. It remains too dependent on qualitative and emotional factors. Its expressive possibilities remain limited. It misses relevant difference and precision. It misses neutrality and availability. It remains too slow, too cumbersome and too complicated. Lastly, and especially, its combinative possibilities are negligible and difficult. You cannot split it up in simpler elements able to be combined for new meaning structures.
You had to find in the heart of the mime and the gesture a less immediate dimension able, in its abstraction, to keep a material autonomy. Simple enough to be usable economically. Neutral enough to become an universal and objective tool. Adjustable enough to be able to have precise meaning. Combinable enough to be able to create an indefinite number of meaning signs.
Isn't such a possibility given in this dimension of the gesture and the mime which is sonority? Not so much the mime and the gesture as sounding but the sonority itself. And more precisely the whole of sonorities the vocal apparatus can emit. It is this materiality of the vocal sounds which the function of meaning will assume and articulate according to an incredible richness. Speech. Language. Living word.
