The Life of Things
Today, mass production of objects is tending to redefine the lines between material things—supposedly inert and passive—and human beings—considered the only subjects endowed with agency. Far from being impermeable to this redefinition, the image is now spreading beyond the two-dimensional space: it is becoming an object in itself. The artists and authors in this book thus explore the universes that are being built between individuals and their material environment, highlighting the reciprocal relations that are formed between subject and object.

What Does the Image Stand For?
Images are now so insidiously omnipresent that their nature has been obliterated. At one time photographs were indicators of reality, but how do they function today? Now that images of the whole world are being captured by everyone at every moment, what do images have to say? By considering the content and meaning of fixed and moving images, the artists and authors in this volume invite readers to cast a critical eye upon testimonials offered.
