Representation and Conception

Representation and design, covers a vast area of subjects referred to projective practices, which by their specificity are not properly included in other lines of investigation.
Visualization and representation are practices with particular characteristics, which refer either to the logical-deductive activity of the mind, either by mobilizing more inductive and sensitive areas – depending on what is represented or visualized - and establishing a type of visual and nonverbal communication specific to projectual thinking and conceiving.
Thus, this line of research will find all of the research that relates to project visualization and representation, understood in a broad way, from Drawing to Computation, going through all the processes of geometric thought, as well as the study of the cognitive and artistic processes that trigger these communication phenomena.
Included here are also the theories and historiography of what is representation and conception related to these areas of knowledge.
