Drawing on Les Immatériaux, the 1985 exhibition curated by Jean-François Lyotard which proposed art as a medium of philosophy, Telemorphosis considers not only how technology has changed society but also how its relationship with humans has become so intimate as to change the way we perceive and are perceived in the world. In addition to crossing precincts between science, philosophy and linguistics, Lyotard proposed the exhibition as a means to transgress the boundaries of the written word, resisting synthesis and approaching the event of thinking. Telemorphosis, Second Nature, in 2020, is at that future point predicted in Les Immateriaux in 1985. No longer science fiction, It is an expression of this modern experience which resists both consciousness and language.
