Long

Guillermo Tirelli works on artistic and digital projects combining philosophy, languages, human sciences, design and technologies.

Argentinian born, he studied philosophy at the National University of Cordoba with a major in metaphysics.

In 2004 he emigrated to Europe. In Paris he completed a master with a work on language in the thinking of Emmanuel Levinas. He made his doctorate in philosophy at the Sorbonne University, Paris IV, under the direction of Jean-Luc Marion with a thesis on the unsayable in the philosophy of Heidegger, Levinas and Wittgenstein.

He moved to Berlin in 2009 and to Oxford in 2016, working in the relation between digital technologies (specially web and epublishing) and human sciences.

In 2012 he takes part in an online postgraduate programme in media arts offered in a joint work of Latin American universities.

Currently he gives talks and writes articles in the frame of his interest in the relation between human sciences and digital technologies. He works in web, print and performative art projects interesting to this research, because of their content, aesthetics or architecture.

As a philosopher, the language and its limits, the understanding of technology and software as an evolution from language, the ethics given by the encounter with the other, the donation, and the dispersion are recurrent themes in his work.

He lives in Oxford, England.
