Thoughts on Images

A Philosophical Evaluation

Jarmo Valkola

EUR 26,00
Disponible Ajouter au panier
Assuming that images are not merely our projections onto the world, what are they? First of all, we are living in an era in which visual images and the visualizing of things that are not necessarily visual has accelerated so dramatically that the global circulation of images has become an end itself, especially through Internet. Related to this, the context of the images is now wide and open for new forms of interpretation. Nowadays images are more prone to circulation, changed contexts, and remaking.
Thoughts on Images is a metatheoretical, and in some sense also metapractical account of how we can approach the role of the image in our contemporary visual and media culture. We are living in a visual and pictorial culture and the contemporary culture is deeply immersed in changing cultural and technological forms. The important question is raised as how far new media and communication techniques do actually determine he culture they actually exist within. The significance of the images in today’s world is greater than ever. Consequently, images have to be studied in a variety of ways and using a wide range of methods and approaches. Images are everywhere around us. In front of the images we have to make choices between the surface of the image and the virtual world it refers to. The perception of the images is not just the processing of the information but also a psychic experience and not straight comparative with the information contained in the pictorial image.
