Analyzing Visuals
Advertisement: The advertisement shown by the Salvation Army is a depressing and a sad work of art. The first item that catches the viewer’s attention is the window placed in the top left corner. This gives an impression of hope for maybe; poverty would not be a life-sentencing situation to all mankind. Maybe, the families experiencing poverty will have a chance to view the modern world and experience the nature. In contrast to the main idea of hope, there are lines in the room, which may represent the days that they have experienced poverty and no one shall go through the same thing by the looks of their emotionless faces.
Artwork: The Three Sphinxes of Bikini, is a beautiful and a dangerous work of art. The first thing that catches my eyes is the enormous explosions by the nuclear bombs in the United States. However, not every explosion look the exact same. The second explosive with the green color shade may represent the trees, a form of nature. The destruction of two hundred Micronesians, have a reason why the nature will be a huge factor. Referring back to nature, we can see the black color from the background that represents the increase in level of radioactivity, which could harm the country by being a major contributor to the world.
Photograph: Kevin Carter’s, A Vulture watches a starving child, is a very emotional photograph. The point of view of the vulture symbolizes the dominance over the child who struggles to survive each day. It gives an interpretation as to how crucial the situation is in Africa. These people are withstanding diseases, poverty and hunger every single day. Knowing the child’s suffering creates a very lonely mood, the type of loneliness most of the North American’s cannot describe. We see the garbage’s scattered across the photograph, which contributes to the emotions by adding to the depressiveness atmosphere of…...

...Analyzing Cynthia Fisher Grantham University In the article “Give Congress Some Credit for Tough Workdays” Congress is uplifted and spoke of as hard working Americans. Rose, the author, wants his audience believe in the good things that Congress does for their country. He explains that according to Public Policy Polling, “Congress is literally less popular than cockroaches and traffic jams” (Rose, 2014). “This is a bum rap” (Rose, 2014), he proclaims, denying that the reputation given has been misconstrued. Throughout the article Rose gives examples of the truth that Congressmen must deal with many issues in their field. “They take heat for nearly every vote, they find themselves on the wrong side of disagreeable and quite vocal dissidents” (Rose, 2014). While issues the author provide are true in facts, important information to why Public Policy Polling discovered the dishearten conclusions are not mentioned. Rose gives a classical argument filled with filled with substantial relevance to his claims. He also recognizes the weakness that “There are cockroaches in the Congress” (Rose, 2014), however, he feels the pros outweigh the cons in the debate. It is certain that the author is strongly sympathetic to the accusations portrayed over the Congress. He is clear and concise with giving reasonable points to the sacrifices that is made by these politics. The author speculates, “The overwhelming majority in Congress believe in what they are doing” (Rose, 2014). Rose wants......

...I have seen many paintings in my life, perhaps the most famous one was mona lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci which I have been seeing in cartoons and movies since my childhood, but that painting was very common so I decided to try something different for my visual essay. I was specifically interested in noir theme, and especially the era of 1930’s and 40’s when the Italian mafia had a major hold on New York being the most notorious criminals during the period. The most interesting feature of the noir theme is the stylized suits with the fedoras worn by most of the high class people at that time. I was searching the internet the other day when I came across this image. This is a painting by Edward Hopper, who was renowned due to his oil paintings at the time. And this painting describes a scene where there are three patrons and a waiter at a diner. There was a diner which inspired him to draw this painting at Greenwich Village, New York, and also the artist was born and residing there, due to which this particular diner was his choice of the subject. The artist’s main themes were to show American life during the 1940’s, while this painting was completed in 1942. In the above painting, there are no people walking around the streets, and this depicts that these are late night hours. The angle of the painting shows that the diner is located at the intersection of the streets. The patrons are wearing stylized suits and fedoras and the diner only sells cigars, which were very common......

...Abstract This paper was written to describe the impact of visual and hearing impairments on student’s academic achievement to teachers and other educators. Having knowledge of these impairments allows the teacher to better serve students with these impairments in the classroom. Hearing and Visual Impairments Hearing and visual impairments have a major impact on a person’s development and academic achievement. Hearing and seeing are critical to speech and language development, communication, and learning. The earlier in a person’s life that they develop or have these impairments, the more serious the development of the person will be effected. In the same manner, the earlier that the problem is identified and intervention begun, the less serious the impact on that person’s development may be (American Speech Language Hearing Association, 2011). Hearing Impairments Hearing impairments are defined as the decreased ability to hear and differentiate sounds. This can range from mild hearing loss to total deafness (March of Dimes, 2010). Humans are able to hear sounds through the brains relationship with the ear. The outer ear absorbs sound waves that travel through the eardrum. These sound waves are then transferred to the middle ear before entering the cochlea. The cochlea is the main receptor organ for hearing and works with inner ear canals that assist with balance to hear and register sounds to the brain. Before an educator can differentiate or modify lesson plans they......

Communication with Visuals

... Communicating With Visuals Aaron Mastro Visual Literacy in Business Instructor Jan Tucker August 11, 2014 In today’s business world, communication is of the utmost importance. How successful a message is communicated can mean the difference between luring customers and pushing them away. It could also be the difference between educating your workforce and them completely ignoring the message you are trying to share. Businesses use visuals in their advertising and also in their presentations that they share with their workforce. Using visuals to help communicate a message can improve the desired effect of having your message heard and understood. The greatest asset the United States Marine Corps has is its Marines. It is important that the leadership does everything they can to ensure the safety of each and every one of their Marines. This means that they need to educate the workforce on issues that pose a threat to their safety. One of these threats that pose one of the biggest risks to Marines safety is alcohol and drug abuse. The message I will be conveying is drug and alcohol prevention. The purpose of it is to pass knowledge on about the dangers of abusing alcohol and drugs as well as the repercussions if Marines are caught violating Marine Corps Orders and the law while under the influence of these substances. The desired result is to have Marines walk away with the knowledge of the dangers of these substances and the impact it could have on their lives......

Many would like to place blame on the content of television media. Clearly it provokes an interest to look at the affects that TV and media are playing. After all, the culture does seem to be headed towards a moral bankruptcy and an increasing obesity rate compared to fifty years ago.

Analyzing Films

...Analyzing Films Daniel Miller Professor Schmidt ENG 225 March 25, 2010 Analyzing Films Generally, when a person wants to watch a movie, it is solely for the purpose of entertainment. As the audience member, we often do not spend a great deal of time analyzing the plot, dialogue, and setting. But by taking the time to carefully analyze a movie, you can get a better appreciation of the story that the filmmakers are trying to tell. The films themselves often have a number of elements that come together in order to guide the audience through the arc of the story. Film has properties that set it apart from painting, sculpture, novels, and plays and it is a storytelling medium that shares various elements with short stories and novels (Boggs and Petrie, 2008). While the actors themselves may be the most visible elements on the screen, a number of other craftsmen had to perform many other functions in order to get that finished film in front of an audience. If you are interested in analyzing why one movie succeeds and another fails, it is necessary to understand how much of a collaborative effort filmmaking truly is. Here are some elements that should be considered when preparing to analyze a film (Pollick, 2007). To Analyze a Film Completely First, consider the effectiveness of the dialogue and storyline. Professional screenwriters are the true architects of a movie, though many of them do not get the same attention as the actors or directors of a film. Screenwriters......

Many people visualize art to be a number of creative things. This is why it is so important. During a certain point and time back in history, a group of artist and fine people decided the need to differentiate science and art. “They begin to split up fine Arts into Visual Arts (painting, sculpture, etc.), Auditory Arts (music, drama, spoken literature) and Performance Arts (which can be either Visual, Auditory or a combination of two-but are performed.” (,) Introducing a few different “Visual Arts “ which were mentioned earlier in the essay “paintings, sculptures, etc.”( “John Ahearnand and RigobertoTorres’s sculpture “Pat” (1982). “(Sayne, 2010) is a good example of a visual art sculpture. One example of a visual art painting is “Pablo Picasso’s Seated Batter,1930.”(Sayne,2010) Introducing an example of Auditory Art would be “Neo-Classical 5 “( Introducing an example of Performance Arts is “The John Oats Band” (performing john-oats-band/.

Visual Communications

...Shelley Davis Visual Communications Monday, June 18, 2012 In order to promote goods using visual communications it is important to choose the right methods of communicating your message to your audience. I personally feel that the approaches that are most effective in making these communications a possibility are colors and shapes, cartoons and illustrations, and typography. Visual communication approaches like these make marketing and advertising easier and more competitive. Research has shown that people make judgments subconsciously about all sorts of things. Among these things are people, the environment, or product within ninety seconds of initial viewing and that between sixty two and ninety percent of that assessment is based on color and shapes. Catching the shopper’s eye and conveying information effectively are critical to successful sales. It has also been proven that color increases brand recognition by up to eighty percent. Shapes and colors improve reading and comprehension as well. There are many reasons why businesses use cartoons and illustrations in their marketing and advertising. When using cartoons and illustrations in marketing and advertising the characters and backgrounds are usually simple and use large shapes and contrasting colors so that the reader will capture the story right away without a lot of trouble. The advantage of these simplicities is that your message is identified by the reader very quickly and with little or, sometimes, no......
