Rich Pictures: Understanding complexity through Icons

Tessa Berg, Robert John Pooley

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


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.
