Visual representations of events occur more often in our daily lives, more and more technologies have been developed to create and distribute these visual instances. The question we ask ourselves in this chapter is how these visual representations, or visual events, can account for greater connectivity in the policy process but also in the relation between citizens and government. In order to answer this question two cases will be reviewed in which a visual reconstruction has been made of a negative event. Conclusions will show that indeed visual events can account for greater connectivity but that this occurs under certain conditions.
