Towards the Use of Images on the Web

Abstract

It could be the task of a new scientific magazine dealing with images to question themselves about the studies that can be done on the heritage of images on the web, rather than aiming only to create new ones. Behind the methods of selection and production of images there are informations that can interest both the psychologist and the anthropologist, both the visual culture scholar and the architect. What considerations can we draw from the hyper-production of contemporary images? What use can be made of photographs, illustrations, graphics, drawings collected on the web that go beyond the immediate aesthetic enjoyment and superficial reception of the messages they carry with them? The high degree of problematic that this kind of investigations suggests reveals a particular wealth of themes for those who wish to investigate image-mediated knowledge available on the Web.
