Dress is a form of visual art, a creation of images with the visible self as its medium.1975 Seeing Through Clothes, ch.5.
The identifying ourselves with the visual image of ourselves has become an instinct; the habit is already old. The picture of me, the me that is seen, is me.1925 'Art and Morality'.
It seems far simpler to go ahead and say that the epic is a fantastic myth, that happens to be true of the material Universe, that other myths are true in terms of their cultural meaning, and that there's absolutely no problem with holding more than one story, just as there's no problem with viewing the sunset in terms of planetary rotation and spectra and nuclear fusions one moment and as visual splendor the next.ursula goodenough
Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.alfred hitchcock
It was van Gogh's madness that prevented him from working; the paintings themselves are ineffably sane, if sanity is to be defined in terms of exact judgment of ends and means and the power of visual analysis.robert hughes
I begin with movement... ...I believe that all human visual experiences are born from movement…ernst ludwig kirchner
My picture-poems are linguistic margins on visual atolls.günter brus
The visual possibility of seeing the historical person (as opposed to the eternal Qur'anic man) on screen is arguably the single most important event allowing Iranians access to modernity.hamid dabashi
Rollerball is an incoherent mess, a jumble of footage in search of plot, meaning, rhythm and sense. There are bright colors and quick movement on the screen, which we can watch as a visual pattern that, in entertainment value, falls somewhere between a kaleidoscope and a lava lamp.roger ebert
We are limited by our visual, physical senses; yet from the Scriptures we can readily conclude that heaven is indeed not distant at all. It is nearby.paul enns
The world of visual perspective is one of unified and homogeneous space. Such a world is alien to the resonating diversity of spoken words. So language was the last art to accept the visual logic of Gutenberg technology, and the first to rebound in the electric age.Marshall McLuhan
By phonemic transformation into visual terms, the alphabet became a universal, abstract, static container of meaningless sounds.Marshall McLuhan
To say that a body or its gravitational field 'bends in space' in its vicinity is the discuss visual space in acoustic terms.Marshall McLuhan
Once introduced discontinuity, once challenge any of the properties of visual space, and as they flow from each other, the whole conceptual framework collapses.Marshall McLuhan
I think visual literacy and media literacy is not without value, but I think plain old-fashioned text literacy and mathematical literacy are much more powerful and flexible ways to organize your mind.neal stephenson
[His photography was a] guiding force for visual interpretation [of Schindler's List ].roman vishniac
Lisp has all the visual appeal of oatmeal with fingernail clippings mixed in.larry wall
To know how scientists engage in visual imagery is to understand how they think creatively.e. o. wilson
...in a visual medium, a comics format ... the writer works for the artist, in the same that the writer in a movie works for the director.Samuel R. Delany The Comics Journal 48
During the time of Nizam Osman Ali Khan (1911-1956), Charminar even figured on the then Hyderabad Rupee because such kind of architecture was unknown in southern India until this time...Mosques and minarets, forts and palaces of great beauty exists side by side with colleges and art galleries, public gardens and administrative buildings offering thereby a rare visual variety to please even the most demanding of visitors.In p.1 (An African Indian Community in Hyderabad: Siddi Identity, Its Maintenance ...)
The pepper spraying of eleven UC Davis students is a startling visual revelation of a pattern repeated over two decades: the widespread use of a potent chemical compound to subdue political protesters, prison inmates and inner city youths, in spite of numerous warnings by health officials of potentially life-threatening effects. The Davis episode shows that pepper spray has become a weapon of choice even for University of California police.Tom Hayden, "Why the Pepper Spray Spree Should End", The Nation (2011)
Understanding how maps work and why maps work (or do not work) as representations in their own right and as prompts to further representations, and what it means for a map to work, are critical issues as we embark on a visual information age.Alan MacEachren (1995/2004) How maps work: representation, visualization, and design. Guilford Press. p. v
If we then make the obvious assumption that the content of a map is appropriate to its purpose, there yet remains the equally significant evaluation of the visual methods employed to convey that content.Arthur Howard Robinson (1952/1966) The look of maps: an examination of cartographic design University of Wisconsin Press. p. 15
I'm not as klutzy as I used to be... I've had visual therapy and all kinds of things to help, but I still wrap my purse around chair legs when I stand up to leave. I do ridiculous things on camera because I do them in my life all the time.Shelley Long, as quoted in Funny Ladies: The Best Humor from America's Funniest Women, p. 7
There was another major phase of split-brain research where we studied the patients as a way of getting at the other questions very much alive in neuroscience, everything from questions about visual midline overlap to spatial attention and resource allocations. At this point the split-brain patients provided a way of examining cortical-subcortical relationships, and other matters.Michael Gazzaniga (2001) (12 April 2011). "Interview with Michael Gazzaniga". Annals of the New York Academy of Science. DOI:10.1111/j.1749-6632.2011.05998.x.
The artist does not illustrate science; ... [but] he frequently responds to the same interests that a scientist does, and expresses by a visual synthesis what the scientist converts into analytical formulae or experimental demonstrations.Lewis Mumford in: Oliver Martin Sayler Revolt in the Arts: A Survey of the Creation, Distribution and Appreciation of Art in America, Sn., 1930, p.117

visual modeling is a usage of images in various business-fields (in the industry, science, management etc.). There are additional limitations on these images distinguishing them from arbitrary pictures - they are created from the standard “patterns” having defined semantics and way of usage.Dmitrij V. Koznov (2002) "Visual Modeling and Software Project Management"
