Elliptical Sequence Structure - From the Idea File

The Idea is for an Elliptical Sequence Structure. Elliptical in the literary sense, suggest intentionally leaving an image out to invite the viewer to provide a mental interpretation of the missing image. In the Sequence Structure, every image is a dependent unit that either Previews or References another image and/or echoes common Elements. In this study, there are [12] full-page spreads and [6] opportunities to interpret the intentionally omitted image, the insanity is that I'll probably spend more time arriving at the image I'm not showing…than making the images that are shown. ; ]

You often hear "I liked the book better than the movie", due in some part to the word images formed by the reader being of a more personal interpretation.
