More > of the most radical explorations of life in the age of biopolitics. Featuring a text by Domenico Quaranta, this book documents and discusses their recent work, a a continuum that is sometimes produced by companies and institutions as a reaction to their life, sometimes by isolating and documenting specific moments in their life.

More > allows everybody to copy, improve, abuse or simply use them. This approach situates F.A.T.

An archive, a catalogue, a user manual and a software handbook. F.A.T. Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media.
