/the wire has been plugged
/in my body there is life
/digits are both like and unlike biological organisms
/the blood is streaming
/routine tasks become automated sharing imaginary participation with the embodied
/this is a primitive type of operation
/the performance stripped of all extraneous artifice
/biological science is now information technology
/the intrusion of fictious into the real
/order into coincidence

ƒ(being) is a reimagining of the early sci-fi stage play R.U.R. written by Karl Čapek in 1920. The performative situations are (de)constructed by playing with the idea of artificially engineered life and the question of delimination between artificial and natural.
