Graphic, Visual and Image Sciences

Enrico Cicalò, University of Sassari, Department of Architecture, Design and City Planning

Keywords: graphic science, visual science, image science.


Visual sciences, image sciences and graphic sciences are just some of the different possible definitions that can be found in literature to define the field of investigation on the production, perception, visualization, reading and interpretation, of images.
Although they represent different approaches and disciplinary traditions, they are often used as synonyms. In this paper is discussed why terms so different in meaning are so interconnected and why it is impossible to investigate one of them without consider the others. IMG journal, Image, Imagination and Imagery has a great potential that is that of becoming a space of maturation, development and deepening for what can be called image sciences, or visual sciences, or graphic sciences. These definitions, which as will be explained below, are often used as synonyms despite the fact that the words they are composed of have profoundly different meanings.
