AbstractThis piece proposes a little détour at the margins of icons. If we understand icons as more or less established figurations of visibility, we should also be able to ascertain the existence of twilight zones where a less predictable circulation of visibility particles takes place. The piece invites to delve into this region developing a sort of “quantic” view on the iconic domain. Using the case of bodily gestures as an illustration, the piece examines how every figuration of visibility entails the experience of “thresholds” which function as both atmospheres and vanishing points of icons.
