Article Response Article response The use of graphical representation of ideas and representational practices in journalism has been massive especially when addressing the use of art and algorithm. However, special care must be undertaken when addressing graphical representation due to the challenge of transmitting scientific knowledge. In fact, the transfer of scientific knowledge can be affected significantly by the representational practices undertaken. Consequently, it creates a misconception of the idea presented or generated from the visual image presented. Graphical images create a serious challenge in the society when addressing the scientific issues. It can either thwart or foster understanding of the society when addressing scientific data. Scientific data should be presented using a process approach and on object approach. Object approach focuses its attention to the representation of a scientific labor and may be inadequate when addressing the accuracy of the data presented in the graphical format.
