THEME

SUBLIMATION

From Longino to Kant, from rhetoric to the fine arts, the history of thought often refers to the « as the supreme form of aesthetic production.
For its part, science defines sublimation as a passage without transition from the solid state to the gaseous state, dodging the liquid state in its stride as if in art the pigment became thought without a medium.
Thus, the digital, by converting the physical world into a sublimated, immaterial, qualifiable and quantifiable form, projects an unexpected bridge between the aesthetic sublime and the scientific sublime In shaping thought, art tended to make the intelligible perceptible now, in its dematerialized form, it reconverts the symbolic perceptible into digital intelligible.
