Notes & Works Cited


[1] I am using the concept of ‘becoming’ as elaborated in the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari (1987), as well in the writings of feminist scholars such as Judith Butler (1990) and Elizabeth Grosz (1994). This is discussed further on page 11 of this chapter.

[2] An example of the widespread accessibility and use of biosensors is the Quantified Self (QS) movement. QS is an international community of individuals who use biosensors for ‘self-tracking’, and boast the motto ‘self knowledge through numbers’ (Quantified Self Labs 2015: www).

[3] For an explanation of fractals, and specifically fractal heart rhythms, see Goldberger et al. (2000).
