VIROSE is a non-profit organization dedicated to 
art and media technology based in Porto, 
Portugal. Normally is designated simply as an 
organization for the theory and practice of the 
old and the new media (Virose - art, theory, 
practice). It gathers artists, programmers, 
architects and others and runs a server with 
several areas, including an e-zine 
[http://www.virose.pt/vector] and free hosting 
areas. Since the beginning of the project, in 
1997, the main question was to understand digital 
arts in the broader sense of art. The problems of 
net.art, digital art or whatever are no so 
different, and even less opposed, to the 
ontological question that put together (and 
apart) art and technic. Is it possible to speak 
about a plural of the arts without thinking also 
its singular? And is it possible to sustain the 
singularity of each art without its plural?

This is the work field of VIROSE ORG.
