Come funzionano le immagini dal Rinascimento a Instagram?


“The central perspective has something chimerical about it,” perhaps this is why Jesus Christ (in Art) and the twins from The Shining (in cinema) are placed at the center.

Leonardo Da Vinci and Stanley Kubrick probably had similar interests. To understand them, we need to change the question we usually ask ourselves (and others) when facing a work of art. We need to move from what it means to how an image works. This is the simple yet complex action proposed by Riccardo Falcinelli in his book Figures.

We are interested because it goes beyond simply enjoying a work of art and urges us to understand the voluntary and unconscious secrets of the artists.
