Vocab of Comics: Iconography

The simplification of an idea by comics helps to understand abstract concepts.
Interplay :
*Icons
*Typographies
*Symbols
*space

In an increasingly technological and visual world, iconography has become even more important in deciphering coded messages. cartoon is a vacuum into which our identity and awareness are pulled an empty shell that we inhabit which enables us to travel in another realm. We just observe the cartoon, we become it! (207).

Mishra:

Using illustrations in education to explain or depict scientific processes is good, but educators must understand that it is not as simple as one may think. What may seem like a simple diagram of a scientific process is actually a very complex idea. A student must have some sort of familiarity with diagrams and art in order to decipher the message. Furthermore, one must be able to unpack the the differences that are included throughout a seemingly simple evolution to the present.

Misha states that there are three concepts inherent in these types of visuals that one must consider when presenting to students: (page 193)
1. illustrations depend on artistic conventions that must be learned
2. scientific illustrations are coded in scientific conventions (hidden assumptions and biases)
3. 3. illustrations have a history of evolution that may deviate from its original representations becoming the mirror image of the mirror image of the mirror image moving further away from its original representation thus creating a illustration that may be harder to understand.
