The visuals and the title should be integrated since the title plays such a large role in the artwork. Without the title nobody would even begin to know what this means.

The majority of the artwork out there doesn’t have the title embedded visually into the artwork. It’s up to the viewer to figure it out, or to make sure that when the viewer views the artwork, the title is there somewhere close too. Which is why I embed the title in the EXIF information on all of my works.

I guess it would be like keeping the audio and video together on a movie (if they aren’t tied together). My bad… but I do think those are more than “titles” you have at the top, they are more like the narrative, so it’s different than what you would see in most visual art museums.

That’s true. I like artworks that tell a story, or ignite a story in the viewer’s mind eye… I might incorporate the title in some of my future work. Thank you for the suggestion.
