Old Text, New Text: Delivery, Arrangement, Invention

As some of you know, I've written about new delivery leading to new arrangements and thus to new inventions--notably of the author as well as of new texts. Fitzgerald was making the same argument about books in her discussion of structures, and I've made them in part through the lens of portfolios and in part through the lens of curriculum and pedagogy. In those discussions, I've often visually cited or incorporated student work (always with permission). For whatever reason, I haven't worked visually. But the image here, it seems to me, makes a different claim than the one on the earlier post. An idle question: as we think about new texts and old texts, how/do these visuals matter?
