Like textuality, images are sources of knowledge, and can be illustration and representation of knowledge. Based on the concept of a complex image, coined by Josep Maria Català, the research project aims to use visual communication as a tool to interrogate the duality between art and science and, at the same time, explore imaginary paths that enrich understanding of the real in the field of Neuromathematics, contributing to its diffusion.
