This is particularly useful for a performance or restaurant analysis: this measures the effect on the audience.Focused on the visual: this organization plan works well for analyzing works of art and pictures. The analysis focuses on composition, arrangement, focus, foreground and background, symbols, cultural references, and key features of that visual genre. This paper analyzes these details in order to explain how they are related to the cultural and historical context of the work of art and then tells how they relate to the overall meaning of the piece.
Be sure to evaluate if and why this piece is effective or is focused on the social context or the story: this type of evaluation takes an image and analyzes how it is effective for a particular point.
