There are many different kinds of visuals we can use in presentations, especially different kinds of graphs & charts. But I didn't realize just how many until I saw this page for a program, called SmartDraw, for making visuals. They claim their software can produce 70 types!
Click on the menu on the left of their page to see more on the different types of visuals.
In "Describing Pictures" class the other day, we looked at this amazing image. At the time I couldn't remember the name of the artist, but I did a little research and refreshed my memory.
This picture is by Beijing-based art photographer Li Wei. Click on the image to see it on his website and see more of his work.
There have been several articles about Li's work: here's one from Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.
