Required Reading introduces the mechanics of visual information processing and aims to find a universal system of image reading, using sets of visual examples, based on my free interpretations and personal views and ideas.

The ‘Required Reading’ project intends to explore the concept of visual literacy through developing a system of elements, which can be used to read images. The work aims to systematize knowledge about formal analysis, structure of an image, its narrative and cultural perception. The project has resulted in the eponymous book, which consists of four chapters based on linguistic terms: morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Each section is illustrated by visual examples. ‘Required Reading’ challenges a critical reaction on the image in general and qualitative comprehension of visuals. Work focuses on the problems in the field of communication and human perception.
