Art is a fundamental form of communication. It has been used throughout societies, not only as decoration but as a means of expression, allowing us to; experience, reflect on, inform, persuade, memorialize, protest and influence our personal beliefs and attitudes. Imagery is powerful and can be used consciously and/or unconsciously to provoke a desired (or otherwise) response. Because each individual processes thousands of images a day, it is important to understand the role Art plays within our personal lives and acknowledge its strength to stimulate emotion -steering the direction of thought and often our future.
