New approaches to plastic language: Prolegomena to a computer-aided approach to pictorial semiotics

Abstract : The first part of this paper summarizes observations bridging the declared aspirations of pictorial semiotics and its real achievements. Since no other explicit model for the interpretation of pictures as pictures has been presented since the era of structuralism, we think that a critique of this model is still highly relevant. The second part of the paper offers some positive and ongoing implementations designed to remedy the shortcomings observed. What is suggested in this second part could be taken as a proof of concept-the concept being that the requirements imposed by structuralism cannot be fully implemented by a human researcher but will need the assistance of computing methodologies. At the same time, as we will see, computers can only do their job, once an adequate phenomenology of human experience is fed into the process.
