Software logic shapes the ontological status of contemporary network culture [16]. Fundamentally, software is not an individual static phenomenon, but it is defined by emergent performative nature [7], which one can compare to living creative part of global ecosystem, to use biological terminology. Artificial life area is following the living organisms processes and represents the evolutionary theory in binary code [22]. We use the notions of evolutionary theory applied in AL as a metaphors, describing the software logic in artistic and societal context. Emergence, autonomy and autopoietic behaviour characteristic for the structure of living cell and for the whole social system, has a distinctive performative character with transformative potential. We can find, that the artificial life and biological metamorphoses in digital culture are the crucial to understand the network culture in current decade
