FUZZY LOGIC VOL.83 by Tom Joyes
278x208mm, 48 pages, Black and white throughout, 2017.
“‘FUZZY LOGIC vol.83’ is a comic book ‘technodrama’ about bodies, borders and surveillance.
Taking place between the layers of global infrastructure, a vegetable processing unit in southern Italy and a data-storage fortification in northern France, FLv.83 follows the journey of two animal protagonists that are unsuspecting subjects of a biometric profiling report. The storyline documents the encounters of ‘Sheep’ and ‘Wolf’ who become examples of how infrastructure and technology are active agents that police migrating bodies. A hybrid of non-fiction-science-fiction, FLv.83 combines academic essay form with video game references, and journalistic reportage with manga novel aesthetics; framing the subject of migration as a piece of fragmented, genre-fusing popular culture.”
