Textual Images and Visual Texts. Comparative Languages†
AbstractThis paper intends to propose some reflections on an ongoing research-starting some years ago- at the Architecture and Design Department at the University of Genoa, by some professors of representation. The focus is identifiable in the concept of overriding the meaning of writing and representation: to interpret writing as a visual sign, and thus as an image, and, on the contrary, the image as a narration, without the help of words. The opportunity arose when the Graphics lab of the ‘degree in Design’ has been the subject of sharing for students of the Master of Science in Information and Publishing; this has led to the development of activities aimed at the training of those who mainly deal with texts, to direct and involve them in the acquisition of critical reading skill tools, without losing sight of the primary purpose of the original course.
