In this paper we discuss expressive visualization techniques that smartly uncover the most important information in order to maximize the visual information in the resulting images. This is achieved through dynamic changes in visual representations, through deformations, or through spatial modifications of parts of the data. Such techniques originate from technical illustration and are called cut-away views, ghosted views, and exploded views. These illustrative techniques unveil the most important visual information by employing high levels of abstraction. The change in visual representation or spatial position is done easily perceivable and the overall visual harmony is preserved
