The New Identity of Image in an Informational Society



The communicational society re-shapes the world of images and, to some extent, manages to replace the real world, while the natural, real space is replaced by the one re-created by means of images in motion. The world of images has been extending so much that, in certain cases, it generates mutations in the relationship between the source and the copy and practically overturns the meaning of reviewing the image, generally described as a substitute for reality or a duplicate of something concrete. Reality is no longer the concrete world, but that which is present on the Screen, while the real Space takes on the part of its own copy.
