The Railway Sleepers' Whisper (article) Foam Magazine #60
Foam Magazine #60 GLYPHS: The IMAGE + TEXT ISSUE
From art, literature and media to academia and internet culture, the visual and the written language have crossed paths many a time, creating a genre of their own. Our interest lies in the current creation and consumption of images and text, which is why the following contributions look closely at the current crossroads and intersections of the two. What meanings and stories can one medium give or take from the other? And how can they influence our thinking or the way we perceive and navigate a world of fact and fiction.
