dc.description.abstractWhat form of life can be envisioned for digital legality? Paper and text has provided the technical medium for positivism, sovereignty and the biopolitical nomos of modern legality. Within modern legality it is routine and normal for life to be represented in the archive, caught in files, reconstructed through reading and subject to discipline and judgment. Life and law were mediated by text and violence. But digital legality with its features of speed, binarism and automatism changes the established categories of ‘life’, ‘law’, ‘text’ and ‘violence.’ This leads both to the utopian dream of an escape from the text and the known violence of modern legality and the dystopian demise of value (what travels under the rubric ‘human’), leaving barely imagined forms of inhuman violence within the techno -totality of code. The question for legal theory is not how to resist digital legality, but the complicit and technical question of how to program it.
