#1. Marilyn Monroe and Vivienne Leigh are real icons of mine. In terms of visual culture, they are both so iconic. There weren't any paparazzi shots of them falling out of taxis, so they will always look so incredible. - Author: Lily Cole
Visual Culture quotes by Lily Cole
#2. Fat people are so rarely included in visual culture that fat is perceived as a blot on the landscape of sleek and slim. - Author: Susie Orbach
Visual Culture quotes by Susie Orbach
#3. The notions of hybridity, metissage, cosmopolitanism have been deployed and reworked in order to capture the polycentric and polysemic aspects of these new configurations. - Author: Okwui Enwezor
Visual Culture quotes by Okwui Enwezor
#4. Remarkably, studies of visual perception have found that two-dimensional images projected onto the retina only achieve full dimensionality as a result of our perception: we infer the third dimension of depth. Sadly, though, as the urgency to expedite all communicative transactions usurps out customary patterns of exchange, perception is accelerated as well. There does not seem to be a great deal of time left over to infer
or interpret, or imagine
much of anything at all. In the end, of course, there is nothing real about this at all, except for our propensity to let it happen. - Author: Jessica Helfand
Visual Culture quotes by Jessica Helfand
#5. New Yorkers only cross water for visual culture if the water is an ocean. The East River throws us for a huge loop. If we started going to Queens and the Bronx for visual culture, many of our rent, space, and crowding problems would be over indefinitely. - Author: Jerry Saltz
Visual Culture quotes by Jerry Saltz
#6. In the seventies, a group of American artists seized the means not of production but of reproduction. They tore apart visual culture at a time of no money, no market, and no one paying attention except other artists. Vietnam and Watergate had happened; everything in America was being questioned. - Author: Jerry Saltz
Visual Culture quotes by Jerry Saltz
#7. Jiu Jitsu is a baptism by combat, and serves a purpose in the inner life of the individual that has always existed, but our modern culture fails to acknowledge. - Author: Chris Matakas
Visual Culture quotes by Chris Matakas
#8. These coupling certainly do not fit with the mainstream idea that genes, or at least organisms, are hell-bent on reproducing themselves. They do fit, however, with the idea of a social role for sex, and they fit with the idea that sexual reproduction is a spandrel, a by-product of some other phenomenon. If Roughgarden is on to something, she believes it could have cultural as well as scientific implications. The orthodoxy of biology has corroded our culture like battery acid, she says, In general, we play out the roles prescribed for us by that culture - aggressive male and coy female - because deviation from its "norm" results in emotional and physical violence, bigotry, personal guilt, and criminalized behaviors. If biology has been getting it wrong though, the new orthodoxy could trigger an infusion of tolerance; perhaps the anomalous prevalence of sexual reproduction will end up having deeper repercussions outside of science than within it. - Author: Michael Brooks
Visual Culture quotes by Michael Brooks
#9. Whatever (its) virtues, (the) writing explores the culture of work but marginalizes work itself. - Author: Maureen Corrigan
Visual Culture quotes by Maureen Corrigan
#10. I've always been involved in the visual arts and music. - Author: Adam Jones
Visual Culture quotes by Adam Jones
#11. A student of Syrian affairs soon becomes used to paradox. A comparatively small country, narrowly chauvinistic and jealous of its national sovereignty, Syria is nevertheless the repository, and has often been the origin, of oecumenical and transcendental ideas about Arab unity. Its society is one of the most heterogeneous in the Middle East and yet its leaders have been the proponents of a radical integrative political movement: Arab Nationalism. It has kindly and hospitable inhabitants, but it is also a police state where a man can be locked up indefinitely without a trial. Your Syrian friends are your friends for life, but a curious current of xenophobia runs through the country. Syrians love culture and natural beauty, but the ugliness of many Syrians towns and their architecture has to be seen to be believed. - Author: David Roberts
Visual Culture quotes by David Roberts
#12. In a school where everyone is famous or rich or whatever, you have a culture, 'What does your dad do?' 'What does your mom do?' - Author: Cynthia Nixon
Visual Culture quotes by Cynthia Nixon
#13. The only reason that you do visual is solely for the visual. That's the only reason. It doesn't sell your music for you. - Author: Shania Twain
Visual Culture quotes by Shania Twain
#14. In a real sense, all of us are "the parents" of all young children - because we help shape the culture and determine its values. - Author: Sydney J. Harris
Visual Culture quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#15. I know that I've played a lot of comedic roles. It's a visual medium. When you get one role, you start to get cast in that role for awhile because that's what people have seen you do, and have hopefully seen you do it successfully. - Author: Fran Kranz
Visual Culture quotes by Fran Kranz
#16. This is cool I have my Autism profile (information processing - visual, verbal, auditory, body, context blindnesses/deafnesses etc) and my Personhood which is Idiosyncratic/Solitary/Emotional personality traits these come from different places but "hold hands" personhood and Autism are different entities and can be separated in terms of context, understanding (differences between ASD and Personality) but they're within one person and I would always want to seen as someone for their personhood rather than my Autism. - Author: Paul Isaacs
Visual Culture quotes by Paul Isaacs
#17. While Indian CEOs in Non-Indian companies are getting all the praise and admiration from the Indians, startups born on Indian soil remain unrecognized - this is not a matter of pride, it's a matter of shame, especially for a population whose history is replete with mathematical, scientific and philosophical achievements. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Visual Culture quotes by Abhijit Naskar

Visual Culture quotes by Phil Crosby

Visual Culture quotes by Edna Ferber
#20. I really like to discover a new culture, a new country, a new rhythm of living. I really, really like that. I think that's the most enriching thing, for my nature, because I like the psychology of people. - Author: Audrey Tautou
Visual Culture quotes by Audrey Tautou
#21. American pop culture – supposedly the most powerful and influential force on the planet – has just surrendered to a one-man psycho-state economic basket-case that starves its own population. - Author: Mark Steyn
Visual Culture quotes by Mark Steyn
#22. We're not like the other teenagers around us. We don't conform to stereotypes. We've actually become weird in the the eyes of our culture. Teen magazines were not written for us. Modern pop music is not composed for us. The latest TV lineup is not scripted for us. We're not your average teenagers anymore.
What are we? We are free. Following Jesus means we don't have to live the way our culture tells us to. - Author: Jaquelle Crowe Ferris
Visual Culture quotes by Jaquelle Crowe Ferris
#23. This posture of skepticism towards the classics displays a profound misjudg- ment. For the great works of Western culture are remarkable for the dis- tance that they maintained from the norms and orthodoxies that gave birth to them. Only a very shallow reading of Chaucer or Shakespeare would see those writers as endorsing the societies in which they lived, or would over- look the far more important fact that their works hold mankind to the light of moral judgment, and examine, with all the love and all the pity that it calls for, the frailty of human nature. It is precisely the aspiration towards universal truth, towards a God's-eye perspective on the human condition, that is the hallmark of Western culture. - Author: Theodore Dalrymple
Visual Culture quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#24. Assimilation of the feminine side is indeed a decisive problem in a man's individuation, but it remains his "private affair" since our patriarchal culture not only does not demand individuation but tends actually to reject it in the male. Assimilation of the archetypally masculine animus side of woman's nature, however, is a different matter. In modern times patriarchal culture, which no longer oppresses her and hinders her cultural participation, motivates woman to develop the opposite side of her psyche from childhood onwards. This means that women are forced into a certain degree of Self-estrangement for the sake of conscious development. Initially more is demanded of them than of men. From woman both femininity and masculinity are required, while from him only masculinity. We are speaking here of one of the complications but also one of the opportunities inherent in woman's situation for our culture that has led to there being such a high percentage of women involved in the development of modern psychology, actively through their collaboration and passively through their conflicts. - Author: Erich Neumann
Visual Culture quotes by Erich Neumann
#25. Culture constitutes an essential element of social and political liberation. As people rise up across the Middle East and North Africa, the diversity of their cultures is not only the means but also the ultimate goal of their liberation and their freedom. - Author: Tariq Ramadan
Visual Culture quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#26. Look at your life. Look at the ways in which you define who you are and what you're capable of achieving. Look at your goals. Look at the pressures applied by the people around you and the culture in which you were raised. Look again. And again. Keep looking until you realize, within your own experience, that you're so much more than who you believe you are. Keep looking until you discover the wondrous heart, the marvelous mind, that is the very basis of your being. - Author: Tsoknyi Rinpoche
Visual Culture quotes by Tsoknyi Rinpoche
#27. Novelty is a new kind of loneliness. - Author: Wendell Berry
Visual Culture quotes by Wendell Berry
#28. No one goes anywhere alone, least of all into exile - not even those who arrive physically alone, unaccompanied by family, spouse, children, parents, or siblings. No one leaves his or her world without having been transfixed by its roots, or with a vacuum for a soul. We carry with us the memory of many fabrics, a self soaked in our history, our culture; a memory, sometimes scattered, sometimes sharp and clear, of the streets of our childhood, of our adolescence; the reminiscence of something distant that suddenly stands out before us, in us, a shy gesture, an open hand, a smile lost in a time of misunderstanding, a sentence, a simple sentence possibly now forgotten by the one who had said it. - Author: Paulo Freire
Visual Culture quotes by Paulo Freire
#29. An art prodigy of the 21st century has yet to be crowned. Or have they? - Author: Luhraw
Visual Culture quotes by Luhraw
#30. No amount of culture or civilization can subdue or hide the wanton violence in man. - Author: Kiran Nagarkar
Visual Culture quotes by Kiran Nagarkar
#31. Video is a funny thing. It's one thing to be an artist, singer-songwriter, and use words and create pictures in people's minds. And then be asked to do video for it, to actually give a certain visual for your song. - Author: Melissa Etheridge
Visual Culture quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#32. I have often said that loneliness is the predominant attitude in our culture. A person can be lonely in the midst of a party; he can be lonely in a crowd. Loneliness may be experienced by the rich and famous or the poor and unknown. - Author: Billy Graham
Visual Culture quotes by Billy Graham
#33. Lurking at the foundations of otaku culture is the complex yearning to produce a pseudo Japan once again from American-made material, after the destruction of the "good old Japan" through the defeat in World War II. - Author: Hiroki Azuma
Visual Culture quotes by Hiroki Azuma
#34. I'm more visual than verbal, really. The painting and so forth. - Author: Christopher Moore
Visual Culture quotes by Christopher Moore
#35. The improved American highway system isolated the American-in-transit. On his speedway he had no contact with the towns which he by-passed. If he stopped for food or gas, he was served no local fare or local fuel, but had one of Howard Johnson's nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon. This vast ocean of superhighways was nearly as free of culture as the sea traversed by the Mayflower Pilgrims. - Author: Daniel J. Boorstin
Visual Culture quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#36. The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity. - Author: Lewis Mumford
Visual Culture quotes by Lewis Mumford
#37. The messages a woman receives from modern North American culture are contradictory; she needs a job for fulfillment but should be home with her children; she is more than her looks, but she had better wear makeup and stay thin; she has every opportunity men have but only on men's terms. - Author: Janell L. Carroll
Visual Culture quotes by Janell L. Carroll
#38. For beauty there must be austerity and a total abandonment, and there cannot be abandonment if there is any sense of ambition expressing itself as an achievement. When there is austerity, there is simplicity, and only the mind that is simple can abandon itself, and out of this abandonment comes love. Such a state is beauty. But of that we are totally unaware. Our civilization, our culture, is based on arrogance, on the sense of achievement, and in society we are at each other's throats, violently competing to achieve, to acquire, to dominate, to become somebody. These are obvious psychological facts. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Visual Culture quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#39. America is no longer a country that cares about experts. In fact, it hates experts. If you can't fit a story into the culture-war storyline in ten seconds or less, it dies. - Author: Matt Taibbi
Visual Culture quotes by Matt Taibbi
#40. It is impossible to fuse totally with a culture for which you feel a measure of antagonism. - Author: Chaim Potok
Visual Culture quotes by Chaim Potok
#41. The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience. - Author: Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Visual Culture quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#42. Professional intellectuals are the voice of a culture and are, therefore, its leaders, its integrators and its bodyguards. - Author: Ayn Rand
Visual Culture quotes by Ayn Rand
