Image: A person with a red ribbon imprinted into her face. And says: "I would be infected, but not affected."

PACC:
Purpose:
This picture shows that you shouldn't be depressed when you have HIV/AIDS. Even though if you are infected with HIV, but you must not be affected and be positive to get on with life.

Audience: The audience is the HIV/AIDS infecotrs and family members of these patients.
Context: HIV/AIDS is a contagious disease and it can be spread to other people which will end up to become AIDS. These patients are afraid to do testing as it is painful and is a lengthy process that might take years.
Culture: One of the following diseases for HIV/AIDS was depression. The reason is because that think that HIV is incurable and wanted to think that "What is the point of doing this." This poster is to encourage these patients and other family members to encourage them to do tests and injections to improve their condition and prevent the virus from spreading.
Linguistic Features: The words are direct and straight to point to what is their message in the poster.
Textual Features: The words symbolises the urgency and deadly on how AIDS is.
Typographical Features:, The font looked creepy and liquidy. but the word "affected" was firm and strong, to represent the firmness and the resilience which can be used to tell the patients that they can get through this torturous period.
Layout: The girl which had a red ribbon imprinted on her face to represent she is HIV positive. But her expression looks calm as she is not affected, but feels positive about it.
Colour: Red is the most dominant colour here. It gives me a sense of violence and entices the viewers to continue looking at the poster and to read on

15 Shawn Ng S1-07 Visual Text Analysis

This was also posted on a padlet


Picture source:
https://goo.gl/images/j9b973
Image: A tourist in an airport dragging small luggage behind her, blood flows from the luggage as she walks.

PACC:
Purpose:
This picture shows how purchasing exotic animal souvenirs can be harmful to the survival of its species, advising us to stop purchasing these exotic animal souvenirs.

Audience: The audience is the tourist who is unaware of how their purchasing of the exotic animal souvenirs could be harming their species.

Context: Exotic animals are hunted down to make souvenirs/collectables for tourist/collectors. This problem is causing the species that have been hunted to provide for the demand, making them endangered, and the only way to stop this is to stop the demand for the souvenirs.

Culture: Killing of endangering animals is generally not allowed, but despite the laws that have been placed up to protect these animals, people in their urge to make a living will break the laws for money. To make it worst, since tourist/collectors find some exotic animal souvenirs nice and do not know the harm it brings, the killing may not cease shortly.

Linguistic Features: The word that was picked are simple and efficient at passing the message to the viewer.

Textual Features: The words are white; a contrast to the darker flooring thus emphasising it while letting it not to be an eyesore or taking the viewer's attention too much.

Typographical Features: The logo that is shown at the bottom right of the picture can be related to the WWF cause, save animals.

Layout: The blood leading up to the lady creates a sense of movement. Causing the viewer to get attracted by the red path (blood), then when the viewer follows the red path (blood) in an attempt to find out what is the cause of the red path (blood), it would lead to the lady and her belongings (the luggage).

Colour: Red is the most dominant colour here. It gives me a sense of violence and entices the viewers to continue looking at the poster.

What Makes Hemingway Hemingway?

In 1954, Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature. According to nobelprize.org, "The prize was awarded for his mastery of the art of narrative... and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style." If you're reading this, chances are you're pretty familiar with Hemingway. You probably have a sense of his style. You may have read authors who themselves read Hemingway, and seen in them the strength of his influence. When you look at the quote above, you may think: "Passive voice. Not very Hemingwayesque." Whatever you know of Hemingway's writing, though, is limited by the fact that you're only human: you can only read so fast; you can only keep track of so many words at a time. Your experience with Hemingway is qualitative, as is your experience with anything you read in a traditional, linear way. Read on...
