Imagery

n. Imagery is a literary device comparable to the literature equivalent of pointillism in the sense that both writer and artist using their respective techniques do not use the actual words or colors that they wish to display to the audience. Instead, they portray the surroundings with shades of colors that the human senses blend into a coherent idea that is ideal to them. Yet language arts and visual arts are not the only such things that use this idea: pixels in our computers, the units of atoms that make up everything in our universe, and etc., are all examples of the smaller components of nature that a well-written imagery should capture.
