Translational imagery. Revealing the invisible aspects from things through the abstract translational technique
The project pursues this question on the medium perspectives with graphics, photographs and typography which are the main tool of visual communication. As part of a practical approach, the author translated a single photograph through these mediums to look at its unique characteristics from the translator’s perspective and to comprehend how it was used in the translation process and affected the interpretation of images. These translational images enhance the quality of visual information delivered from traditional linguistic translations and give readers various visual experiences. Also, it leaves readers open questions by being read imperfectly and encourages active image literacy.
