  • Titill er á ensku Visual Communication
  • Bakkalár
  • The following thesis explores the increasing importance of visual communication in the digital age and traces its origins through to an anticipated future. It seeks to identify what makes an effective image to capture the viewer's attention with recognition of cultural differences and differing personal tastes and requirements. The thesis shows how the advancement of technology has made all perspectives and viewpoints reachable. It also tracks the development of the image as a representative model of the abstract that can be manipulated and doctored by anyone with easily attainable equipment and the effect this has had on modern society. A particular reference is given on the influence of the Bauhaus and its teachers Wassily Kandinsky, László Moholy-Nagy and Johannes Itten in defining the boundaries of what is possible through visual communication and how its impact continues to this day.
    A conclusion was made on the increasing dominance of the ever evolving visual communication as a means of exchanging information: that questions the benefits of it's technological advancement but that underlines its fundamental importance to our lives and concept of self.
