Was quested to think the movements of (im)possible bodies who rebel against their cyborgzation so that life can escape: tears in the clinic territories; reality shifts; imagination; standards subversion and deconstruction of control over the body; other-human-bodies fabulation in collective health. Body-without-Organs to other (im)possible clinics.
