The significance of the image as revealed in the process of scanning therefore represents a synthesis of two intentions: one manifested in the image and the other belonging to the observer. It follows that images are not ‘denotative’ (unambiguous) complexes of symbols (like numbers for example) but ‘connotative’ (ambiguous) complexes of symbols: They provide space for interpretation.
