Dear lazyweb^D^Dmailing list.

It is my understanding that semiotics deals with discrete signs and 
symbols. And that aesthetics deals in no small part with figure/ground 
relationships. These are not discrete signs and symbols.

Is there any semiotic writing that deals with figure/ground 
relationships, or are figure/ground relationships kryptonite to semiopsy?

I have in mind something like "Perspective As Symbolic Form", but for 
semiotics and figure/ground relationships rather than symbolic form and 
perspective. :-)

- Rob.
