“The symbolic nature and the point where the image fails.”
A picture becomes a text and this text becomes a picture. One could say, the text stays a picture but the language has changed. What does change mean in this context? Is it just a change of symbols? What happens during the change of symbols? The symbols are read in each stage of the translation. How? That’s a question of perception, of the context of perception. How is language perceived in its various appearances?
The translation from textual to pictural language is not discontinuous!
