There's this nice interview

Reading; What do pictures want? 

In which he states:
"My general pedagogical aim is to slow down the reception of the image, to encourage prolonged contemplation, second and third looks, reversals of perceptual fields such as figure/ground and surface/depth... one that is willing to explore its object with rigorous phenomenological or psychoanalytic or semiotic or socio-historical modes of interpretation"

phenomenology; What do pictures want? 

Aaaah, that reminds me I stumbled up this article the other day: "Intrusive gaze: Thoughts and glances upon a ch’ixi world", which regards at RIVERA CUSICANQUI's /

And the fact I must, in the near future of my studies, fully engage in this theory.

+ that also reminded me of @CaribenxMarciaX work :BlobCatMlem:
