Z: Why vis?

Node: Visual entities are not completely abstract

Descriptor LimitedAbstraction
Argumentative standpoint Semiotics
Description

A sign representation is not as abstract as a textual representation. For example, the set of all triangles can only be represented by one or more specific triangles. Specific objects, however, can be represented by a visual structure that is close to their nature, and thus easier to decode, e.g., "○" and "circle".
