I guess I had never thought of infographics as writing until Margot started exploring the option for her re-mediation project. My friend Crystal sent me this the other day in the library, and I am really enjoying how much power these images can have as well as how much humor they can bring.
These images were created by Yang Liu, a Chinese artist who moved to Germany at age 14. These are supposed to represent differences between Germans (in blue) and the Chinese (in red).
This definitely got me thinking about not only the power of photos, paintings, and images, but also the types of stories that infographics can tell. You can see more of Yang Liu’s work here.
