the nature of images

perhaps one of the most difficult tasks of the contemporary artist is not to became swamped by the number of techno-tools capable of precision rendering of the visible world (photo,film,video) and to create with these systems  the “pure” images of the symbolic. (…) Images that are not images implies a use of images in ways other than the reproduction for appreciation of the visual physical world. MANDALAS are an example of this, having specif function which determines their appearance.
