The course Systems of Representation has been conceived as an open structure made up of relationships between different areas of knowledge. Art and new media, architectural theory and visual communication, graphic design and interface design, digital tools and manual techniques, are put into relation in the theory lessons and in the realization of exercises. The crossing interactions between the different media gives rise to an interdisciplinary and participatory education, with the support of information and communication technologies. The paper focuses in the content and results of two of the six themes that make the course: Text and Image.
