Sample text

Nor do we see in a neat frame, but are always reframing as we move our eyes across a scene or object, and as we move our heads or bodies within the viewing field.

Colours help us to differentiate elements within our purview (the green of the trees and the blue of the sky); so do shape and movement (the still, rectangular window, as opposed to the relatively amorphous, waving tree branches). The use of colour, shape, movement and other elements (such as texture, distance and light) does not occur in an unmediated way, however; rather, the extent to which, and the how, we recognise, know and use them are tied up with our immersion in, and relationship with, our cultural world and its categories.

The photographer who took that shot could have taken a second photograph from 10 metres further away, this time including the whole of the house, more of the garden, and fourteen other dogs standing in the doorway. This would have produced a different text because the potential relationship between the various signs (and therefore the meanings available to anyone making sense of the text) would have been considerably altered; in the first shot, for instance, the woman dominates space, but she would be only one small part of the second shot.
