Making the invisible visible – The dotted line

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – ___________________________________________________ VISUALISATION… that is this week’s topic… Making the Invisible visible… Visualisation is all about making the invisible visible! What does that include? Well~ Let’t think…

Wind speed, temperature, bills, people’s opinion poll… they’re all invisible… We can’t see them….by themselves, they’re all invisible! However when we try and go through the visualisation process, the temperature, the bills become visible.

We’ll begin to see trends forming… and because of the trend we can guesstimate what will happen next! We might be able to understand the object we are trying to visualize. So for example, the temperature of each day. By graphing each day’s temperature we can see a trend, such as winter is colder and summer is hotter. By utilizing the trend, we can try and guesstimate the temperature for the next day… and even for the next week! Of course, we’re not going to say the guesstimating is absolutely correct! After all, we’re only guessing basing on the trend.

What are some other usages of making the invisible visible? There is! In this week’s readings by Arnell. It gave the example of the dotted line!

 What does this diagram tell us? It tells us that we should turn the knob 90 degrees to the right, then push it in. The Actual diagram tell us how the final product should look like, and the dotted figure tell us the steps it will look like.

Let’s take a look at another diagram.

Manufacturing Process

Manufacturing Process

The diagram tells us how the object goes through its manufacturing phrases. In the diagram, the dotted line shows us that it goes through the factory, then goes into the plant…. By following the dotted line, it tells us how the project should go. The two examples showed us how things should look like and how things are done!

How does the dotted line affect publishing and the publics? The dotted line visualizes the steps/ instructions prior to the final product! It allows the public to visualize the procedures of the event… and hence it’ll simplifying the publishing process. We dramatically reduce the time by combining a few steps into the same instruction!
