syn·site

sin.sīt
noun, verb

1: AN ENTANGLED, NON-SINGULAR SITE. A site of simultaneity spanning disparate sites, marked by plurality and potentiality.

2: ASSEMBLED BITS WITHIN THE ENTANGLED SITE. An ever-cleaving constellation of bits within the aforementioned entangled site.

3: SYNTAX AS SYN-SITE. A verb-noun concatenation—process embedded in, affecting, and affected by site—with an assertive threshold calling attention to itself between the two. To understand this hybridity of site is to see the hyphenated construct itself as a tool—to see in its syllabic nodes and articulated connection a self-aware mirage.

< ORIGIN > The SITE/NON-SITE construct of Robert Smithson, reviewed.
