This paper provides three different ways of visualizing intercultural communication processes: a visual metaphor named Cage Painting, an active listening model, and the Dialectic Flow of thinking. Each of these representations captures some unique characteristics of communication processes and contributes in a different way to our understanding of intercultural communication and its inherent challenges.
