memory

Posted in Visual Language by The Department of Illustration on March 10, 2009

palmistry I am interested in how the body stores memory, and the sorts of codes you could devise to mark out your autobiography. Some tattoos are emblematic in this way. This is an illustration from an old palmistry manual. Equally phrenology and chakra illustrations make similar interesting connections.

Lots of images at BibilOdyssey
