This image-text offers a series of propositions that theorise perspective and Image through the technologies that create different visual mediums. The chapter takes its lead from the propositional nature of the essay 'From Work to Text'. In this case, the focus is upon the 'image', upon the technics of the image, rather than the Text. We might suggest a practice of imaging, except that in everyday language such a term for the making of the image seems to falter somewhat, to evoke techniques and technologies of the image, rather than a more general conceptual space, as we understand with the Text. Here, as we look through painting, photography and projections, we come to consider perspective as the underlying construct, and one which leads us to work against the image, or at least the fixed, empirical image.

Keywords:   Roland Barthes, Victor Burgin, image/imaging/Image, perspective, artistic medium
