Ecology of Images


This diagram summarizes the ideas behind an ‘ecology of images’. An image always exists in a set of contexts. It is always part of an ‘image community’, which it works with or against. It is portrayed here with a honeycomb effect around the central image. Image community can be thought of as a genre and/or a modality of images. As such, there are formal aesthetic properties and particular content and uses an image might share with other images, or indeed with which it is attempting to work against or appropriate.
