Abstract

Execution is a function that operates within a range of systems, such as language, computation or biology. This contribution traces a few of these instantiations of execution in order to highlight the materially discursive quality of any particular executing system, with the discussion moving from law and guillotine, language to langue, computer instruction and memory. In each case tracing the way in which execution produces situated posthuman couplings in a dynamic ensemble of such conjugating systems.
