Mimesis and composition refer to principles of artful production in technology and the arts. Mimesis seeks patterns for imitation and repetition, creating affective routines somewhat as rituals or games do. Composition refers to a grammar of things. In painting and poetry, music and photography, in mechanical and software engineering composition appears inventive and “natural” at once as one finds the right way of putting things together. -- What kinds of thinking and social practice are implicated in mimetic and compositional tinkering, making, building? How do humans and humanity shape and reshape themselves through technology and art?
