Jean Baudrillard The Evil Demon of Images and The Precession
of Simulacra Images Images Hyperreality and
Precession of Simulacra Simulation


The power of Images

Simulacra Hyperreality and Precession of Simulacra Past: The territory preceded the Map.
The referential being preceded mirror.

Representation: Principle of equivalence between the real and the sign. Simulacra The striking power of images over other signs.
The pervasiveness of images in everyday life.

The simulation of reality through images.
The fascination for our modern media images. The successive phases of the images:

It is the reflection of a basic reality.
It masks and perverts a basic reality.
It masks the absence of a basic reality.
It bears no relation to any reality whatever:

It is its own SIMILACRUM.
Now: generation of models of a real without origin in reality: The HYPERREAL.

Simulation: radical negation of the sign as value.

Signs: Dissimulate that there is nothing Questions? A complete creation of a system
which does not exist in reality singular: simulacrum
plural: simulacra Simulation Abstraction: no longer that of the map and the territory The territory no longer precedes the map generation of models of a real
without an origin
in reality hyperreal produced from memory banks, matrices can be reproduced indefinite number of times there is no clear
boundary between the individual and the flow of messages and images surrounding them "promiscuous"intromission and reproduction
of media messages and images in our lives " Images ultimately have no finality and proceed by total contiguity, infinitely multiplying themselves according to an irresistible epidemic process which no one can control" world truly infinite

exponential by means of images Thanks!
