Visual communication pervades our lives. We live in a visual culture, surrounded by visual messages that affect us consciously and unconsciously. Much of our media and electronic communications are visually-oriented. But the truth is that as humans, we have always lived that way, and we are, in fact, programmed to take in the world through our visual perceptions. This class will grapple with the question of what it means to be so dependent on visual input and output and how that affects all aspects of our lives as one of our dominant communicative tools. And you may even learn how you can take advantage of this tool – and lessen it’s negative impact.
