From icons to memes: The afterlife of an image
Speaker: Dr Walter Patrick Wade
24 March 8pm

We often think of images as communicating a message to a particular audience, and judge them based on their ability to accomplish a goal, for example, selling a product, promoting a charity, documenting a social problem, or narrating a news story. However, what happens to such images when they are recirculated, in a world where everyone can become an editor, photographer or filmmaker? This talk by Dr Walter Patrick Wade provides a survey of iconic and viral images and tracks how they have become part of our visual repertoire. It considers the afterlife of the image beyond its original context, focusing not just on what image makers accomplish with pictures but also how audiences adapt them for their own purposes.
