The art of seeing - are images more powerful than words ?

The Art of Seeing
Professor Gottfried Boehm explores why images are so powerful.


It never ceases to impress me how we react to images,
what they do to us, what they can tell us without words and how little we know why this is !!

Reminds me of how ever so often the comment pops up on the EF, "this thread is useless without pictures "

Hahaha. Sada, were you looking to discuss how the image of an object provokes different emotions and responses from the actual object or the words used for the object? No such luck.

Me, I'm partial to images of creatures such as this:

Re: The art of seeing - are images more powerful than words ?

I would say it is worthwhile watching the video I've attached on my first post

Especially the beginning ... starting with those lovely images sure does the trick to stay on watching ... I thought that was quite clever !!!

Re: The art of seeing - are images more powerful than words ?

In some ways I prefer the printed word. It leaves more to the imagination and makes you work a bit.

Steven Millhauser is my latest favourite author. He's such a master and what a fantastic imagination he has.
