The technical meaning of the word emblem (‘to put inside’) indicates an inlay that leads to a composition of figures. In Roman times it indicated a dispositio, or a combination of effective images. The emblem straddles words and the links between them, in order to say something else with images. Emblems are ‘silent notes’, like hieroglyphics. They seem ‘mute’ to those who look at them without knowing their meaning. They are painted images that do not need to be said, but rather ‘seen’. tomorrow produces precisely this: signs that, through a play of cross-references, actively express content, that is, signify something other than themselves. “Words signify, things are signified. However, things too can signify at times” (Andrea Alciato, The Book of Emblems, 1531).
