Metramorphosis is a process of change on borderlines and thresholds between being and absence, memory and oblivion, 1 and non-I, a process of transgression and fading away. The metramorphic consciousness has no centre, cannot hold a fixed gaze -or, if it has a centre, it constantly slides to the borders, to the margins.1 This paper examines Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger’s matrixial theory in relation to her concept of Metramorphosis as “a process of change on borderlines and thresholds” 2 when experienced from the perspective of living at home during the pandemic. It attempts to do this by addressing the circumstances of the artist/author of this paper, as a way to (re)produce encounters, firstly lived through the screen, then later developed upon through a palimpsestic process whereby layers and layers of ‘artworking’ are applied through interdisciplinary virtual, digital and analogue methods, as a response to working through the pandemic.
