The discourse is given as self-sufficient, setting its own meaning impositions while images are using their authoritarian abilities to establish their legitimacy.

This boundary appears as permeable and artificial. Interactions between images propose various discourse strategies : from hyper-didactism to polysemic-oneirism.

other. But, finally, is there really a choice?
