"Keep Your Ear-Lids Open," By: Gary Ferrington
Being able to perceive visual and aural stimuli are natural capabilities most humans have at birth. However, the ability to derive meaning from these stimuli is a learned process beginning with infancy and continuing throughout one's lifetime.
Audio Design: Creating Multi-Sensory Images For The Mind
By Gary Ferrington
When television, in the 1950's, replaced radio as the principle medium of home entertainment, the listener no longer had to use his or her imagination. Favorite characters and their actions became visually detailed. Society has increasingly relied on images created by others to give form and definition to the world in which all live.
Noise Picture Method: A Manifesto?
By David Rothenberg.
"This is the world of noise, the noise world, where too much is happening and nothing needs to be seen. No one tells you where to look, human pictures and messages announce themselves everywhere, wishing so much to mean something while the words only serve to obliterate any real meaning of the world's necessity to be one way and not any other. All we have created is a world of possibility, with no choice more necessary than any other." Published in Finnish in Kuva, Spring 1998, a magazine of photography and design.
