The BwO is the virtual field of the body, the domain of the basic particles and forces (“singularities,” “affects,” “intensities,” “ideas,” “perceptions,” etc.) from which an actual organism composed. To become a BwO is to destratify the body, to reconnect it with the intensive, impersonal, trans-human matter that composes and surrounds it, to open it up to new connections and assemblages, to explore the innumerable things it can do beyond the restricted set of habitual actions that characterise the organised body. Thus the aim of Nanjing BwO workshop is to explore the potential of BwO, as a way reconnecting body with its complex environment with specific affects and programs, from with a ‘new body’ is generated from its defined programs and movements.
