The appropriation of the biological paradigm in contemporary digital design practices frequently draws on the biophilosophy of Gilles De leuze and Felix Guattari. These particular concepts lie at the nexus of organismic bodies, internal and external energetics, and systemic (self) actualizations or individuations, concepts that frequently go under the theoretical ambit of "becoming."
