We live in a world permeated by signs that belong to multiple areas of knowledge. Signs that have been filtered and stored by our natural and artificial interfaces can determine our perceptions and conceptions about the complexities of the world. The proposal of this study is to present poetic experiments that sustain a consistency between what is real and what can be defined as semiotically real, and that sustain an efficient behavior but, in being poetic, exerts tension on this close relationship. The exercise of exploring the limits of conformed thought - understood here as a composition of codes, standards, patterns and cultural representations – expands and reveals a variety of settings that are not readily perceived in the world.
