O código das imagens técnicas

Olha o Flusser aí. Já o conhecia?

Alguns trechos:

“Numbers are being transcoded into digital codes, and digital codes are, themselves, being transcoded into synthetic images. So, it is my firm belief that if you want, nowadays, to have a clear and distinct communication of your concepts, you have to use synthetic images, no longer words.”

“Before the invention of writing, traditional images were used as maps for the world.”

“If you look at the big revolutions through which mankind has gone, let´s say the neolithic revolution or the revolution of bronze age, or the iron age, or the industrial revolution, every revolution is, in fact, a technical revolution.”
