summary The different approaches to virtuality in connection with graphical representation is the main theme of this paper. In the first part, the trends of global civilization are seen as a kind of over valuation of processes in progress. In this sense action itself is more important than things. The way as means have substituted the ends is discussed. In this context the role played by images as vehicles going between things creates the need of graphical objects. Following this, the meaning of “graphics” in connection with the different planes of virtuality are discussed. In the same way the concept of “virtual space” is examined. It is shown that the notion of “space” is hard to grasp if an attempt of rigorous definition is made. Finally, a discussion about the graphical representation of architectural space leads to some conclusions on the action of computers as instances of a new kind of virtuality: that which deals with objects without touching them.
