Descripción del producto

Críticas

[This] will alter your perceptions, of comics, of art, of how to see and process your world and your ideas. Sousanis is relentlessly innovative in his solutions to picturing his concepts and in the process provides irrefutable proof of the efficacy of the medium to explain engagingly and memorably... It also uses two dimensional words and images to encourage us to broaden our horizons and deepen our understanding, in other words to perceive in multiple dimensions. And yes, reading comics re-wires your mind.-- (01/01/2016) Entirely non-narrative, the book takes on the dichotomy between words and images in Western thought and argues that both are simultaneously involved in the production of meaning. Executed in sharp black-and-white diagrams, and abstract and geometric images, this scintillatingly intelligent book succeeds in the great feat of holding the reader's attention not through a story but through ideas. Sousanis's own book is the perfect illustration of the inextricability of the verbal and the visual.-- (11/28/2015) If you prefer your mind-melt, dimension-bending comics with less costumes and melodrama, Nick Sousanis' cerebral exploration of psychology and perspective offers a refreshing palate cleanser... Presented with a visual vocabulary that will blow readers minds in the most scholarly way possible.--Sean Edgar"Paste" (07/08/2015) Sousanis' investigation into the connection between word and image could not have been presented in any other way... [He] presents a philosophical and reference heavy treatise in a compelling and accessible manner.--Don O'Mahony"Irish Examiner" (12/30/2015) Frankly, genius.--Zachary Petit"Print" (12/07/2015) An incisive meditation on the relationship between text and images.--David Dabscheck"New York Observer" (10/29/2015) There is much in Unflattening that will interest and stimulate thought for higher education scholars, teachers and students... In this beautiful and complex book, Sousanis grapples with core tenets of Western knowledge: who are our heroes, and why do we valorize their charts and grids so much more than, for example, the oral traditions of Pacific navigators who could read the stars? It is a beautiful book and a complex book that defies categorization--that's why I recommend it.--Frances Kelly"Higher Education Research & Development" (02/01/2017) Sousanis has achieved something powerful--a book that goes beyond just saying a thesis to actually showing one.--Stephen Asma"Los Angeles Review of Books" (05/06/2016) Nick Sousanis's Unflattening is a complex, beautiful, delirious meditation on just about everything under the sun; a unique and bracing read.--Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics and Making Comics An important book, Unflattening is consistently innovative, using abstraction alongside realism, using framing and the (dis)organization of the page to represent different modes of thought. The words and images speak for themselves and succeed on their own terms. I couldn't stop reading it.--Henry Jenkins, author of Spreadable Media: Creating Value and Meaning in a Networked Society Unflattening will no doubt become an essential teaching tool for helping students--especially undergraduates--think about comics, graphic novels, and other media in which words and images combine... The book is potentially revolutionary... This is a book that wants to teach, a book that will be talked about and belongs in any forward-looking library.--R. J. Baumann"Choice" (10/01/2015) Sousanis's drawings are first rate and his writing style economical. To demonstrate how introducing new vantage points expands our thinking, he explores a range of philosophical concepts, calling on Plato, Copernicus, and even the 'fifth dimension' explored in the TV series The Twilight Zone.-- (05/24/2015) Ranging across a wide range of disciplines--the arts, the sciences, popular culture, critical theory--Sousanis argues that the verbal and the visual are inextricably entwined in the production of knowledge... It is a book that is dense with the syntheses of ideas, nimble, far-reaching and impossible to summarize. It liberates itself from the standard layout of panels within frames, teaching the eye and mind to read the unfailingly intelligent black-and-white artwork in unconventional and new ways. Unflattening deserves a place as a compulsory textbook in schools.-- (10/02/2015) Nick Sousanis's Unflattening is a genuine oddity, a philosophical treatise in comics form. 'Flatness, ' for Sousanis's purposes, is not the quality of abstraction that Clement Greenberg lauded in modern art, but the lamentable condition of the inhabitants of Edwin A. Abbott's 'Flatland' the inability to understand that there might be more than one can immediately perceive. The solution he proposes is admitting visual elements, and especially drawings, into the intellectual domain of language. (Psst--he's talking about comics!)-- (05/29/2015) If Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics charmingly investigated the history, development, and formal features of visual narrative, Unflattening is its equally brilliant epistemological counterpart. With profound depth and insight, Sousanis looks at how the 'unflattening' possibilities of this form of storytelling allow us to see the world from entirely new perspectives... Written with remarkable clarity and insight, its sometimes-haunting, sometimes-breathtaking illustrations prove the book's arguments about how visual information can shape our understanding... Weaving together language, perception, and the theory of knowledge in an investigation of how the multidimensional possibilities of graphic storytelling can awaken us to ways of knowing from multiple perspectives, Sousanis has made a profound contribution to the field of comics studies and to semiotics, epistemology, and the burgeoning study of visible thinking. Essential reading for anyone seeking to create, critique, or consider the visual narrative form.-- (03/16/2015) Although the implications are profound, Unflattening is less an insurrection than a carefully argued case for rethinking our priorities about art and learning. Unflattening is above all a humane piece of scholarship which challenges our assumptions about perception.-- (05/06/2015) Unflattening is Nick Sousanis's meditation on the nature of learning and visual communication... At a time when graphic literature has become widely accepted as a medium for fiction and memoir, Unflattening breaks new ground in the use of visual narrative for the expression of abstract ideas. Beautifully drawn and brilliantly conceived, Unflattening is an instant classic.-- (12/21/2015)
