Technical Rhetoricians and the Art of Configuring Images.
Salinas, Carlos
Technical Communication Quarterly, v11 n2 p165-83 Spr 2002
Considers how too often theories about how to write and read images are limited to a functional view, which stresses objectivity, ignores interpretation, and sees design as preset layout formulae. Argues for a configural view of images that stresses their artificiality and cultural significance and articulates design in strategic terms by combining current graphic design theory with rhetoric's understanding of "techne."
