Two elephants: 1, 2
- Kress: modes of writing and image are governed by distinct logics:
- writing (still dependent upon speech): logic of time, sequence
- Image: logic of space, simultaneity
- But, factors such as rhyme, rhythm, stress, etc interfere with linearity of speech/writing
- And, space is often linearised (eg consider a train journey)
- Everything involves a persistent tension between time and space, between the diachronic and the synchronic
