J’ai aussi écrit une version française de cet article.

As a visual artist, I sort of hate words while secretly adoring them too.


For a quick summary of the thesis I wrote (and lots of images by René Magritte and Louise Bourgeois), go here.

The posters from the video are below.  To see others, go here!

I am not at all surprised that some people were so captivated by the images that the text simply couldn’t compete.  They are arresting.  I suspect that people who have a copy of the book and didn’t notice or absorb the text at first will go back to it regularly and start integrating the words with their experience more explicitly.

Tour de force!
