Representations constitute a crucial common link between scientific and 
artistic visual practices. Integrating the history, philosophy and 
sociology of scientific and artistic representations, this one-day 
workshop will explore how representations function first and foremost as 
experimental practices and as guidelines to practical judgements in 
science and in the visual arts.

The aim of the workshop is to explore the role of representations “in 
action” -- that is, their function as practices that partake of a 
process of inquiry. Drawing on historical and contemporary case-studies, 
the contributions to the workshop will present a range of arguments that 
will place visual practices in science and the visual arts, along with 
their commonalities and tensions, at the centre of current 
epistemological and historiographical debates on the dynamics of 
scientific observation and visualization, the quest for objectivity and 
the evaluative practices that implicitly inform the construction and use 
of representations.
