Dress is a form of visual art, a creation of images with the visible self as its medium.1975 Seeing Through Clothes, ch.5.
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
I don’t hate her personally, though if she were enough of a person to be worth such a strong emotion I think I easily could. What I hate is what she represents: the willingness of human beings to be reduced to a slick visual package, like a new television set up-to-the-minute casing, same old works.john brunner
Marcel Duchamp, one of this century’s pioneers, moved his work through the retinal boundaries which had been established with Impressionism into a field where language, thought and vision act upon one another. There it changed form through a complex interplay of new mental and physical materials, heralding many of the technical, mental and visual details to be found in more recent art.. ..He declared that he wanted to kill art (“for myself”) but his persistent attempts to destroy frames of reference altered our thinking, established new units of thought, a “new thought for that object”.jasper johns
By the late 1930s all nationalist movements had generated [[w:Historiography|historolographical writing. Poetry , essays , plays , and fiction , as well as aural and visual representations ( maps , cartoons , lithographs , sculpture , songs , film); all were generative of politically infused historical consciousness .S.P.Sen in Historians and Histiriography, quoted by Mary E. Hancock, in p.223
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
Lisp has all the visual appeal of oatmeal with fingernail clippings mixed in.Larry Wall, "Wherefore Art, Thou?", The Perl Journal 1(1); reprinted in Linux Journal, March 1, 1997
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"
