ConceptsPhysical AppearanceFirst impressionVisual preferenceSelf perception Verbal Messages
PHYSICAL APPEARANCEThe contrasting physical appearance is used to distinguish the lungs of the two types; smokers and non-smokers.The smokers lung is depicted as the dirtier, more damaged-looking lung whereas the non-smokers lung is depicted as bright, clean and healthy.Non-verbal communication is used in this context to provide a visual form to communicate the differences between the two lifestyles.FIRST IMPRESSIONThe first scene that strikes the viewers eye is the contrasting condition between the two lungs.Viewers are disgusted by the lung on the left, as opposed to the healthy lung on the right.Through the slogan, viewers then realize these are lungs belonging to two different people, the smoker and the non-smoker.VERBAL COMMUNICATIONThe slogan sends the message, while the visual of the deteriorated lung reinforces it in the viewers mind.Forces smokers to re-evaluate their habits by reminding them about the effects of smoking that they cannot see (healthy on the outside, but not inside).
VISUAL PREFERENCEThe first response of the viewer toward the mural is disgust toward the smokers lung, preferring the healthier looking non-smokers lung.The visual preference of the viewer towards the healthy lung discourages the viewer to smoke, wanting to relate to the image of their healthy, non-smokers lung.SELF-PERCEPTIONThe image of the smokers lung makes the viewer (especially smokers) reflect on their habits, giving them a glimpse of what could be happening to their lungs that they cannot see.Smokers in particular are alerted to the fact that while they may look and feel healthy, the real effects are the ones that they cannot see.This self-reflection encourages smokers to stop smoking.
