Prostheses and biotechnological interfaces are rapidly increasing our ability to interact with artificial and immersive environments.

In this techno-sphere, however, affective and relational activities seem to be reduced to informational patterns. The expressive capacities of human beings tend to an homogenization induced by information and control technologies such as Big Data and Machine Learning. These attempts to standardize forms of interaction aim at the transformation of agency into models of predictable and computable behaviors. By promoting the myth of technological transparency, new forms of cognitive capitalism generate an informational bubble aimed at controlling bodies and the trajectories of de-sire.

We therefore ask: How can technologies become a creative pattern within the heterotopia of the bod-ies? To what extent can technological environments become the object of subversion? How can indeterminacy and non-predictability be used to re-territorialize our physical and desiring identities?
