Mind Changing Image

Find an image that you think was specifically created to change your mind about something. Propaganda, advertising, news – any image that you think is meant to influence your thoughts or feelings. Write about whether or not you think it works and why it does or does not.

Some questions to keep in mind as you work on this are: What did the creators of the image want it to accomplish? Is there a message being communicated and if so, what is that message? How does the Content of the image support your ideas about it and what aspects of the Appearance do you think are part of this message? You might also consider the denotative and connotative aspects of the image as part it. Finally, does this attempt work for you…are you convinced by what it communicates or not?
