1. The Big RED Bubble
Hans Rosling’s Ted Talk presentation serves as the classic example of how to clearly explain a data graphic to an audience. Watch this video: http://becomingvisual.com/portfolio/hansrosling. Rosling explains the axes, the colors, and the encodings. Listen for when he describes China as “the big red bubble” as a cue to point the audience’s attention to the country of interest.
2. The Dolphin in the rose
A classic optical illusion used to explain elements of human memory and perception is a picture of a rose with a dolphin hidden in the rose’s petals. Take a look at the original image: http://becomingvisual.com/portfolio/dolphin.
