Description:

The contemporary individual is surrounded by images that are currently attributed symbolic significance. The commercials, the video clips, the slogans, the rhetoric of the electoral discourses base their effectiveness on certain striking images, with a high evocative power, capable of decisively curbing the sensitivity of the people, images whose status of symbols is recognized. In the torrent of images that the post-modern audio-visual culture incontinently secretes, symbolic representations are characterized by the ability to synthesize and communicate information promptly. (The author)
