Reason and Realism: Image As Argument
We will examine the new visual environment for brand information and product representation. We will begin by briefly recapping the results of our study (forthcoming JCR 2007) showing that pictures are now capable of representing as specific a list of brand attributes as are words—and that consumers accurately infer the features thus listed. We will then present studies that expand this notion by exploring the range in the representation of objects in an age of heavy visual stylization and viewer experience with tools such as Photoshop.
