Abstract

It is often claimed that pictures are not well suited to representing negative information. Against this widely held view, we argue that a close look at how ordinary people use visual representations will show that negative information can be depicted in various interesting ways. We focus on three types of representations, namely, photographs, videos, and comics, and discuss design varieties for depicting negation.
