Visibility distinguishes between the two types of the imaginative process. The first type starts at the word and arrives at the visual image. On the other hand, the second type starts with the visual image and arrives at its verbal expression. Writing or reading would be an example of the first type. For example, first you use the words and place them in a way to create a visual image that the reader creates in their head. Cinema is also a form of the first type. In cinema the director first establishes his/her ideas and writes them on the page and they are later turned into an image as the film is produced. The second type is a little bit harder for me to place. In one hand the visualization and creation of art could be an example but I think that the creation often begins with a word in mind. However, as an observer looks at the art they first see the image and then associate it with verbal expression to give the piece meaning.
