Composing

As I was making this, I couldn’t help thinking about the expression – “to compose oneself,” and about how we are always putting our identities together for performance – in person, in print, in traditional and in digital media. The composing process both reveals and conceals identity. Elements are chosen for their ability to reveal or convey a message or a feeling or an impression, so that a composer goes through Burke’s “selection, reflection, deflection” process to arrive at a final product that says something specific about the maker.
