There are a list of ideas/topics the book attempts to talk about but there is no actual discussion, each chapter defines a topic, gives an example and moves on to the next one. No context is given, nothing is tied together with each other or to a greater concept, its not that this book is necessarily a 'simple introduction' to these ideas for people new to the concepts, its just a list of definitions.
When that happens in photo, the ones first fascinated by the laws and the names -triad, Pearce- ended totally alienated incapable of producing just one single image... equivalent to blind, imagination and freedom totally out of the equation.
Yes I declare myself 'anti-semiotic'.And then I found this surprising book. It si fun to read, with just the exact level of semiotic a creative, a student of comunication or a young artist would want: how we represent and read, how the meaning is constructed.... but always keeping in mind that the important part is the message not is structure, what we see, not empty laws about the sign...
Really a must in the classroom, it is far from the semiotic dogma, and close to !creativity!!!!
Far form a text made of full academic notes, it is one page image and a question, the next the explanation and more examples, more image than any other thing.
