Images, Text and Modern Feints: Dongyoung Lee’s I can’t and the Material of Meaning – 3:AM Magazine

[…] Barthes, a tempered romantic, speaking of “entering upon the true history of language,” perhaps caught between a science and a poetics, writes in 1966:

“An image gives out different meanings and we don’t always know how to handle them. Moreover, this phenomenon of polysemy also exists in articulated language, and is one of the main themes of current linguistic research.

Man Ray Self-Portrait

Man Ray (August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976), born Emmanuel Radnitzky, was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Perhaps best described simply as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. Best known in the art world for his avant-garde photography, Man Ray produced major works in a variety of media and considered himself a painter above all. He was also a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. He is noted for his photograms, which he renamed “rayographs” after himself.  ~ artdaily.org
