Infographics are graphic visual representations of data and information.

They come in extremely handy when you need to explain complex information, numbers or data rather quickly and effectively. Infographics are used worldwide from magazines to metro stations.

It is also available as PDF-document for high quality printing. In a recent interview[1] Jean Baudrillard states that the Wachowski Brothers had misapplied his theory of simulacra and simulation in The Matrix, as they embody the idea of the virtual as a concrete reality and carry it over to “visible phantasms”. What Baudrillard opposes to in the application of the distinction between real and virtual in the Matrix series is that “the brand-new problem of the simulation is mistaken with the very classic problem of the illusion, already mentioned by Plato”. The infamous ‘desert of the real’ quote and the hollowed out book “Simulation and Simulacra” used by Neo as a box for keeping his illegal software (the simulation Bible becoming simulacrum itself) were apparent references to Baudrillard alongside other musings on the nature of simulation functioning as the main plot of the narrative.

The article thus takes the form of an account of the complex relationship between the two authors' projects from their common origins in English literary criticism through to Williams's rejection of McLuhan's proto-postmodern avant-gardism.

During the mechanical ages we had extended our bodies in space. Today, after more than a century of electric technology, we have extended our central nervous system itself in a global embrace, abolishing both space and time as far as our planet is concerned. Introduction /4 Some of the principal extensions, together with some of their psychic and social consequences, are studied in this book.

In the mechanical age now receding, many actions could be taken without too much concern. Western man acquired from the technology of literacy the power to act without reacting.

Voulant donner une analyse globale des constructions visuelles, les Visual Studies mêlent l'art du Quattrocento, l'affiche ou les tags. Elles sont ainsi significatives d'un grand mouvement de décontextualisation.

TRANSFORMATIONS Journal of Media & Culture

By Julie MacKenzie While Judith Butler may be recognised foremost as a theorist of gender, what is less often remarked upon is that Butler’s work on gender is firmly located within a “radical democratic” politics, and indeed that it is in the name of a notion of radical democracy that Butler’s work proceeds. This essay, then, critically interrogates the nexus of gender and democratic politics in Butler’s work, with a view to tracing the connection between Butler’s ontological commitments and her brand of radical democracy. This essay is in two parts. Troubling Gender and Ontology Butler’s work on gender forms part of an overarching theoretical project that is concerned to ceaselessly unsettle the ease with which we can distinguish between the real and the discursive. The term gender plays only a muted role in Bodies That Matter. Debray, What is Mediology? Régis Debray, What is Mediology?

Has there been a social and cultural shift to the visual, over against the verbal and textual, in the past 50 years, and has it been accelerating in the past 10 or 20 years?

RILI. Carnet de recherche visuel, par André Gunthert. Au lendemain de la victoire de François Hollande aux primaires socialistes, Libération ornait sa Une d’une photo laudative de Sébastien Calvet (voir ci-contre) – tout en niant fermement, par la voix de Sylvain Bourmeau, toute orientation politique dans ce choix décrit comme purement esthétique. 2. Identités visuelles - Réflexion du visuel – étude de l'exposition contemporaine - Signes, Discours et Sociétés. Dans l'art, la publicité et les médias occidentaux, l'image participe à la constitution des valeurs esthétiques et morales actuelles.

Elle modèle le conforme, le tolérable et rejette le reste des apparitions dans le domaine du monstrueux. C'est du moins l'idée que l'on se ferait de sa fonction, si l'on ne s'intéressait plus particulièrement à une figure elle-même prépondérante dans la création actuelle, capable de réunir les deux aspects de la conformité au modèle et de la déviance. La figure du double, en tant que personnage dont l’identité se réfère à un modèle préexistant, peut en effet être considérée comme monstrueuse.

Les personnages dupliqués et les reproductions parfaites, tout en mettant en cause la singularité du sujet, ne sauraient toutefois se substituer parfaitement aux originaux.
