In our times, there are three types of images: pre- photographic, photographic, and post-photographic. Pre- photographic images are handmade, photographic images are photo-mechanic recordings, and post- photographic images are the visual result of digital codes.


Similar to the term "collective unconscious" coined by Carl Jung, about the "reservoir of the experiences of our species,” artists believe that they inherit art history and traditions; that every object and image that has been created throughout history is embedded in the artist's unconscious.
