Into: The processes of looking closely and thinking critically about visual texts are important to art and design practices because without them we would not be able to fully grasp the proper context of it, instead we would make assumptions. The assumptions that we make are not necessarily wrong and they can help us to get a better understanding of the visual text. Context is also important to critical thinking when looking at visual texts because it can help us to get a better understanding of what is actually happening in it.
Conclusion: In conclusion both assumptions and context are things that are important processes when looking closely and thinking critically about visual texts in are and design practices. Without assumptions we wouldn’t know where to start at understanding the visual text and we wouldn’t be able to make connections to us and the world around us. And context is just as important because it helps us to see what the artist or designer wanted us to see, it may be slightly different to what they saw but it is still important that we have context in these practices.
