On the relationship between images and words and their relation to body and perception
Item Usage Stats
Prehistoric man created a mark and throughout the history this mark evolved and bifurcated into two: a word and an image. While images were cherished, words were set apart from images. This thesis attempts to look at the relationship between images and words through seeking their connection to perception and body. It investigates how image-word dichotomy occurred and how this dichotomy obscured the connection between writing and body. The thesis also examines different approaches to overcome this phenomenon in the context of Modern Art. By examining my artwork within this framework, it argues that it is possible to embody the inseparable relationship between images and words through reconnecting with the body’s primordial existence.
