Modern life is a sea of images. With so much visual data bombarding us - from personal devices to mass media - our brains must rapidly adapt to make sense of it all.
In her new book, Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars, Camille Paglia returns to the subject that made her famous, situating our current visual environment within the scope of all of art history.
Camille Paglia is an American teacher and social critic. She has been a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since 1984.
