Context (revised definition)

Who? What? Where? When? Why? Context is the surroundings of the object, person, or place, it helps us understand visual text by making connections to the world and us, the audience. Context refers to the reason and goals behind the creation. There is no wrong and right with context, as it is always changing with the world, context is based on our own understanding of the world and the personal experiences we have been through, thus meaning each person will interpret and react in unique ways.
