Department of Biological Flow

Department of Biological Flow

The Department of Biological Flow is a project by Sean Smith and Barbara Fornssler exploring the concept of the moving body as it is integrated into broader information networks of signal and noise.

The reference is from George Lucas' epic 1971 movie, THX 1138, in which a futuristic society is managed through the state-controlled intensification of communication processes within every facet of daily life, regulating the flux of all human subjects in work, leisure and love.

Though the Department exists in homage to Lucas' vision, we seek to reclaim the agency of the human subject in our consideration of biological flow and its negotiations with economic and political structures both material and immaterial.
