This paper proposes a reflection on communication using references like metáporo's Ciro Marcondes Filho, the communication of artificially by Flusser and with flow's Michel Serres, we seek communication as transforming event, unique, unrepeatable, which comes into play also the insertion of subjectivity and intuition. We seek the permission and the accuracy of a method that can be built in parallel to look for objects of communication, which is discovered in the process and is transient and flexible as the communication itself.
