The Center for Image in Science and Art (CISA-UL) is an image archive platform whose aim is to question the very philosophical, scientific and artistic nature of image. It was developed within the contexto of the research project Image in Science and Art.
CISA-UL intends to select, recover and put together a set of scientific and artistic images. The aim is to look for their inner affinities, to investigate their differences, to catch their furtive proximities, to test their divergences, to analyse their resemblances, to uncover their secret dialogues, to experiment their crossings.
CISA-UL works on the basis of two main commitments: to give special attention to the Portuguese production of images in science and art; and to promote interdisciplinary research with the artistic, scientific and philosophical comunities.
