Reading Responce #5 Luke Davis

The Psychological Rhetorical Images by Charles Hill is an interesting literature that analyzes the value of images and how those images can trigger our emotions. More importantly these linked emotions are a part of our reference systems. The information provided by the article also talks about how visuals work to persuade. How artists are able to do this is through vivid information. The interesting thing about vivid information is that statistics are not vivid information. Statistics are boring and to the viewer it can sometimes be confusing. Everything we take in visually can be broken down through psychology. I found this article really interesting since I take in media all the time and each media is different. Facebook and images of my friends is vivid information in the sense that it a bunch of actual experiences on my computer. When I watch TV shows and movies I feel a sense of the story telling or according to the article the narrative, descriptive account of these characters. The psychology of the Visual is important to creators like me. Emotional versus Analytical. In class, we saw a starving child and we have an emotional response as opposed to the analytical. The Emotion is sad. The emotion is more impactful that a written response to a starving children because we see the kid. So the media of a newspaper is different from a national geographic.
