«[…] Communication is the opposite of knowledge. It is enemy of the ideas because it is essential to her dissolving all the contents. The alternative is a way of doing based on memory and imagination, on an interested disinterest that doesn’t escape world but moves it.”» Mario Perniola, Contro la comunicazione, Einaudi, Torino 2004.
The main paradox of communication is the dissolution of its contents by accumulation.
Through a typographic interpretation of Mario Perniola’s text, we tried to produce some of the following communication mechanisms: its violence, the exposition’s excess, the negation that combines with affirmation, a schizophrenic symptomatology and at last the removal of the principle of reality.
