Pictures can be used to communicate messages. While linguistic and psychological research has yielded considerable insight in the interpretation of text, communication through pictures has long been the domain of analyses and 'desk research'. This project aims at an experimental approach towards the communicative impact of pictures, focusing on stylistic differences in depiction, and especially on pictorial realism.

An important component of my research is language production: how does what you see influence what you say?
