Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art


Issue 1 | January – June 2016

The image in science and art


The image hints at art and science with a single sign: it represents both the staircase of Palazzo Farnese as well as the countless spirals of architecture and art of all time. It also shows the regulatory presence of a geometric law in several forms of organic life and aggregation of matter at different scales. The visual scheme that supports the thought and gives it shape lies in the image.
