Writing with images 

We think about the relation between images and texts as consisting in a range with two ends. At one end there is the illustrative relation (the image makes the text accessible), at the other there is the iconic relation (the text explains the image), but what other readings make the text accessible? In this workshop we will be rethinking the relations between images and texts to discover those apparently invisible possibilities: making them coexist without hierarchies, the symbiotic need that images and texts have for each other, the way they function as a whole. To that end we will consider works that are midway between sculpture and the image; we will read a couple of short texts to underpin ideas and concepts; and we will carry out some small exercises to put what we have discussed into practice.
