Imagologies

No, I didn't invent the term "imgalogies". Mark C. Taylor and Esa Saarinen coined this brilliant concept in their book "Imagologies". I just (mis)use the concept because it exactly expresses how I see a certain type of images: as a means, a vehicle to communicate complex emotions and/or ideas. "A picture says more than a 1,000 words"... well, there ya go! It doesn't have to be a form of artistic expression, but then... when does something stop to be an artistic expression and begin to be something else? Feynman diagrams have a well-defined practical meaning, but in the right context they might be viewed as artistic expression too. In the end, it's all about how abstract concepts are "represented"....
