Scaffold of Visual Grammar
Examples of visual texts (for analysis)
Within the context Text and Human experience - representations of that experience can be constructed through visual techniques
...visual texts can include, visual images as well as written texts - sometimes in combination.
In any analysis you're required to look at the
text as a whole (establish context/purpose)
elements within the text (textual and visual)
ways the elements combine to make meaning
Analysis of visual texts in Stage 6 English
Learning the language of visual grammar helps you analyse visual texts efficiently and effectively
- Visual texts make meaning in three ways
who or what is represented
who/what is interacting with whom/what
how do the elements of composition (the visual text) construct the meaning
Representational meaning, interactive meaning, compositional meaning
what kind of interaction is created between the person and the gun AND the viewer
how do colours, gaze, salience, placement, mode influence the composition AND the viewer?
