Digital images and the z-axis
This article argues that while a semiotic analysis of composition in thescreen, page and image has significant heuristic value, this would befurther enhanced were it also to take into account surface and depth. It isargued that these two aspects of composition are critical for successfulreading/viewing of images, and especially for digital images and theirnavigation. Semantic primitives, or primes, for space (where/place; here;above; below; far; near; side; inside) are employed in this argument for thedevelopment of a more comprehensive analysis of spatial integration forthe screen, page and image.
