"93,7 K. The viral stone" is a speculative project that proposes a new linguistic system through an anthropomorphic analysis of the gestures in TikTok challenges. It reflects on the etymology of contemporary language and questions its influence on future society. By means of analytical cards, data have been collected and have configured the first lexical approximation of this language. From these words, a song has been composed, Peach Emoji, which complements the graphic system designed to represent the movement that configures this language. All this is engraved on a stone, making reference to the Rosetta Stone, materialising and giving value to this identified language.
