Description: All artistic and architectural effects are evoked, mediated and experienced through poeticised images. These images are embodied and lived experiences that take place in 'the flesh of the world', becoming part of us, at the same time that we unconsciously project aspects of ourselves on to a conceived space, object or event. Artistic images have a life and reality of their own and they develop through unexpected associations rather than rational and causal logic. Images are usually thought of as retinal pictures but profound poetic images are multi-sensory and they address us in an embodied and emotive manner. Architecture is usually analysed and taught as a discipline that articulates space and geometry, but the mental impact of architecture arises significantly from its image-quality that integrates the various aspects and dimensions of experience into a singular, internalized and remembered entity. The book is planned in four main parts or chapters that will look at in turn: the image in culture; the nature of the image and imagination, and the specific characteristics of the artistic image; concluding with the architectural image. The Embodied Image is to be illustrated with between 45 and 60 paired images, which will be diverse in subject ranging from scientific images to historic artistic and architectural masterpieces, and contemporary architectural and artistic works.
