Autoeth is said to be evocative, performative and thus communicative (Holman Jones). Using the concept of dialogicality from Mikhail Bakhtin, the communicative part was very important in my work. One could say that every piece of text is in a way communicative, but I took this one step further: in the introduction I invited the reader to go with me on the journey through the landscape of my text, because I as a writer am dependent of the reader for the meaning-making of the text. Once the text leaves my hand, it becomes an “orphan” and the only way it can gain new or richer meaning, is when a reader relates the text to her own life and thus makes it meaningful – from a different horizon than mine. A mutual effort.
