The topic of visualization made us access a basic instinct we use everyday, visualizing. While looking through the readings I found the article “what does 200 calories look like?” which really resonated with me due to my keen interest in nutrition and fitness. I responded with this article because of its content which helped explain the topic of visualization in a way that was easily understandable. From this article i looked around for ways that information can be re-told to consumers in a way that is interesting and new and can allow the public to interact with them more than they would with writing on paper.

I found this video on youtube that showed a range of temperature’s through an interesting viual tool.
