Denis Diderot

memories and imaginations

"Images are not just passive entities that coexist with their human hosts, any more than the microorganisms that dwell in our intestines. They change the way we think and dream. They refunction our memories and imaginations, bringing new criteria and new desires into the world."

"... to analyse the ways in which images seem to come alive and want things."

W. J. T. Mitchell, What do pictures want ?

It is not feasible to understand interstingly complex pictures by exhaustively cataloging all interactions and composition in a comprehensive, bottom-up manner.
