Global Images

A study on the practice of images. With a glossary of picture terms



We live in a time in which the generation and manipulation of pictorial processes seem to know no limits. With the rise of the digital visualization of data in the 1990s, images are no longer bound to a certain image format. What has changed in relation to traditional forms of distribution, archiving and perception?
The focus of this book is on the critical awareness of a cultural image practice. Arthur Engelbert’s interdisciplinary, media-scientifically weighted examination of numerous image formats and visualization processes shows that the use of optical information can provide clues as to how image events in the most diverse image media are interconnected in an open image system.
