Introduction
Irene Cazzaro is a PhD student at the University of Bologna. She is also member of the Laboratory of Image Theories at IUAV University of Venice and she is teaching assistant in the same university for the courses of representation and morphology of artefacts. She conducts studies on morphology, morphogenesis and digital reconstruction in architecture and art history.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
A shared terminology (and consequently methodology) should be the basis of a hypothetical 3D digital reconstruction conducted in a critical and scientific manner. We propose a study of the most frequent terms and the evolution of some of their definitions over the last 25 years. The aim is to reach a more conscious – and to some extent standardised...
Chapter
Full-text available
The fundamental importance of an increasingly scientific presentation of photographic, graphic and textual documentation in the field of Cultural Heritage from the (parallel and integrated) points of view of both the representation and the restoration techniques is here discussed through the case study of the gate of villa Pentetorri in Modena. The...

Questo contributo espone una nuova interpretazione (storico-tecnica) e alcune riattualizzazioni (progettuali) del tema delle 'scatole prospettiche' realizzate come casi di dispositivi 'anamorfici' nel genere delle 'vedute d'interni' del XVII secolo belga e olandese. Presentiamo le nostre considerazioni come argomento dimostrativo e sperimentale di...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
On considère ici le sujet de l'imagination et de ses relations avec des théories particulières (qui ont été utilisées dans une grande variété de domaines) en donnant l'exemple d'Alan Turing, qui a envisagé un modèle de la morphogenèse pour expliquer le développement des êtres vivants et un moyen pour visualiser ce mécanisme à l'aide d'un ordinateur...
Article
Full-text available
The digitisation and cataloguing of the Seguso Vetri d'Arte archive-together with other archives of glass factories preserved in the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice-has led to the analysis not only of the documents themselves, but also of the relationships between them. What emerges is the particular design process that gives shape to glass. We r...

Characterised by a concise style, made up of simple phrases that aim at clarity and scientific effectiveness, the brief introduction of The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis by Alan Turing already includes all of the themes which will be discussed in detail in the following paragraphs of his text; at the same time, the author’s awareness that these t...

Full-text available
Il saggio indaga aspetti della "anti-prospettiva"-cioè, del disegno che cerca di figurare gli spazi intrinseci delle cose, di tradurli graficamente sul piano con effetti di spazialità ambigua, reversibile, riflessa, invertendo il senso (topologico) di interno/esterno, centro/ periferia, inglobato/inglobante-nelle formulazioni opposte del tema che c...
Article
Full-text available
The essay investigates some aspects of the "anti-perspective"-i.e. the drawing that tries to figure the intrinsic spaces of Things, to graphically translate them on the plane with effects of ambiguous, reversible, reflected spatiality, reversing the (topological) meaning of interior/exterior, centre/periphery, enclosed/enclosing-in the opposite for...
Chapter
Full-text available
By analysing the relationship between drawing and actual object, it is observed that the design of glass artefacts depends on the features of the material itself, on the processing techniques and their limits. More generally, therefore, we can say that form is the result of forces located inside the matter, as it also happens in the generation of a...
Chapter
Full-text available
The representation of the interiors in exhibitions – as “exemplary interiors” – and in the graphic, photographic, cinematographic images, is studied here according to the theme of the “anti-perspective” that characterises the two opposite tendencies – the abstractionist and the realist one – in the teaching of graphic arts at VChUTEMAS in Moscow. O...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cities as organisms in constant transformation can be described with the aid of models based on dynamic and complex systems. Among the different possibilities, we will analyse Alan Turing's morphogenetic model as an exemplary case: it has been initially used to account for the growth of living beings, but it has been later applied to many different...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In 1921-25, between two opposite aesthetics of the anti-perspective taught at the VchuTeMas - i) the “Reverse perspective” of the Russian icons described by Florenskij and ii) El Lissitzky's theory of the “Proun” - there was a failed dialogue that, a century later, must be resumed starting to cross the two opposite utopias from which those aestheti...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The drawings and photographs preserved in the Seguso Vetri d'Arte archive at the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice allow us to reconstruct the creative process that leads to the generation of glass objects and to analyse it in the light of the – physical and metaphorical – theme of reflection. Taking specifically into consideration the production o...

Chapter
The contribution focuses on the comparison of two types of case studies: (1) educational devices dedicated to the historical heritage of the Interior Design and (2) artistic (on-site) installations dedicated to the experience of the landscape. Both cases are characterised by low digital technology, high level of analogic experience, translation of...
Article
Full-text available
Cellular automata are models that deal with both nature and artefacts: they can indeed simulate living beings as well as be employed in the creation of objects. After the introduction of this concept by Stanislaw Ulam and John Von Neumann in the late 1940s, many different kinds of cellular automata have been created and have become part of what Chr...

The daily show of real-time infographic, through different media and technological platforms, gives evidence of the topicality of a project of a rational visual communication system laid out by Neurath and bound to the idea of a rational evolution of the visual semiotic systems through the subject of the relationships between image and writing in h...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The old concept of eidos summed up those of “form” and “image” of an object; this is the subject covered here, supporting a realistic theory of conception and design, as opposed to the anti-realism of the postmodern age and its media conception of “image”. Nowadays it is believed that some ways of conceiving the form and image of the artefacts—acco...
Article
Full-text available
Set in the context of semiotics of (artefact) design, this contribution suggests a new frame to examine the “eidetic categories” used in the analysis of the “plastic level” of (visual) artefacts, starting from Gilbert Simondon's thesis. Simondon traces the most essential evolutionary path in relation to the design of “inorganic” artefacts: these pr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Based on the assumption that “Drawing” aims at providing the most effective expression of the figural geometry of visual, natural or artificial objects, this paper proposes to analyse two branches of the discipline: 1) a notion of “figural geometry” of the bodies consisting of a “figurative” (iconic and analogical) and a “plastic” (mereological and...
Book
An architectural portfolio must be accurate not only from a graphical point of view: it has also to be organised in an effective way. This book deals with these aspects and helps students create their personal portfolio. It contains exercises about lettering and diagrams as well.
