Title: Economics of Imagination: Showing and Telling with Pictures and Words
Abstract: Pictures make meaning differently than words, and thereby engage imagination in different ways as well. I explore how three key differences between imagistic and linguistic systems – in content, perspective, and force – conspire to shape the economics of imagination: in who pays, in what coin, and for what result. There is no global currency of ‘worth’, but there are systematic trade-offs to be navigated, by both maker and audience.
