The language of images – quietzone

Welcome to the Quiet Zone

Originally uploaded by Dave Foord

Whilst traveling on a train yesterday I noticed this sign, identifying a carriage where phones and music players are banned however looking at the image it occurred to me, that the language of the image suggests that it is a place to use headphones and mobiles.

As I try and encourage people to make their learning more visual, there is a need to think about the ‘language of images’ – what information does the image give, in the absence of written language.
