Zur Philosophie des Unbestimmten in Bildern
[Iconic Form Processes: On the Philosophy of the Implicit in Images]
Ed. by Lauschke, Marion / Schiffler, Johanna / Engel, Franz
Aims and Scope
The term iconic form processes refers to phenomena that produce transitions between natural and symbolic forms. For example, the fire-scarred surface of a bronze artwork produces effects transcending the realm of artistic intention. When a work is created and perceived, the genesis of the image also invariably involves a “recession into the implicit” (John Dewey). This volume furnishes the foundations for a theory of iconic form processes.
