Abstract or Description
The thought of Blanchot is drawn upon to understand the strangeness of image as distinct from object in that it includes a dimension of absence. Philosophy’s to approach in terms of a ground is criticised, and instead through discussion of Stezaker’s work an approach specific to collage is developed in order to understand not only what it means to place in image next to another image, but also to place an image on top of an image, to find another image in an image, and to render the single image a site of potential becomings though intense attention and reverie.
