“The real advantage of thinking of image conventions as solutions to a dynamical system with tendencies and structure is to gain perspective and insight into the patterns of image culture. A perspective that can explain why artists including myself are often inspired by image conventions, not to wage war on reified generalities like “capitalism” or other forms of authority, but rather because image conventions are evidence of deeper primordial processes common to humanity and larger than the individual.
