The article explores the possibility to use a binary code as a code language that can be staged or choreographed. It mentions that numbers one and zero are performative as they can be read as indicators of failure and success. It notes the susceptibility of the numbers to the bodies that are counting and actors on whose fingers these numbers are actualised. It also emphasizes that the notion of digitality in computer technologies expresses the logic of binarism at a corporeal semiotic level.
