[Xmca-l] Imagination;semiotic mediation



I invite comment on the process of interpreting images using the most
recent New Yorker cover as an example. They often strike me as especially
rich condensed representations.
They are one of the means I use to think about Eisenshtein, who David has
brought into recent discussions to useful effect.

How do you interpret the raised hand and inscriptions to be found at
newyorker.com if you scroll down the page. The leftmost image with a hand.
How do you interpret it from first impression to reflective summary/label?

If this proves interesting the cover with the stop sign would be a second
choice.
