Abstract

The evolution of the descriptive codes (overlooking writing, as it is worth a dedicated dissertation, while paying particular attention to images) presents a very complex situation, which is essentially due to images’ productive hypertrophy, with all the consequences resulting from it, and first of all the need for proper reading codes. However, the return to a two-dimensional world ensures that the evocative power of images (together with its transcendence and the faith in that intrinsic artistic value) gives way to a descriptive and immanent continuum, which deprives image of its artistic potential, rather classifying it as mere technological product.
