YEPEZ-COLLANTES, Raúl. Fissures in the Perception of the Visual Urban Environment. Índex [online]. 2019, n.7, pp.94-106. ISSN 2477-9199.

This article deals with the topic of perception of urban environment through the exploration and register of some ephemeral visual elements that appear in the city. With the support of theoretical considerations and photographic images of the author's production, it is made evident the existence of a parallel city that coexists with the one usually perceived. Based on the definitions of urban morphology and iconography, the author introduces the understanding of the structure of cities through sensory and perceptual registers, and how it becomes an imaginatively constructed form. The article emphasizes an instance of validity for cities that goes beyond, from the purely physical and formal to the recognition of the intangible and phenomenological as elements in the urban landscape.

Palabras clave : City; urban environment; ephemeral; photography.
