Possible Bodies is a collaborative inquiry into the concrete and at the same time fictional entities of so-called bodies. The research collective asks what material-cultural conditions of possibility render »bodies« volumetrically present, specifically in the context of technologies and techniques of 3-D-tracking, modeling, rendering, and scanning. Although different volumetric technologies are situated in specific domains and regimes, their knowledge practices persistently affect and confirm each other. Possible Bodies has grown convinced that this circulated unfolding contributes to the crystallization of standard operations that are primarily informed by a hegemonic interest in efficiency, control, probability, and optimization. In response to this we propose that these standard operations call for there to be an affirmative form of responsibility-taking, one that might generate other figures and operations.
