Rich Pictures: understanding complexity through icons.

Berg, Tessa

Authors

Tessa Berg



Abstract

Rich pictures are a powerful tool for understanding complexity. The rich picture is not only a tool to aid discussion and debate about problem situations. We claim that understanding the iconography produced during the picturing process leads to a knowledge understanding that far exceeds the limitations of words and speech. We claim there is a language of the rich picture and a subsequent icon grammar structure.
