    This paper explores the topics of post-biological identity, data bodies and augmentation, particularly through the Data Body Trader project. This research aims to present a speculative, practice based method for understanding post-biological identity, through the establishment of artworks and arts based research endeavours that focus on the relationship between bodies of matter, data bodies and their augmentation in embodied, interactive network scenarios. This paper argues that by having bodies that are both material and virtual, humans are post-biological. This research contributes a framework for understanding post-biological identity that focuses on the mixed reality nature of these ubiquitous, multi-faceted networks of self, through the establishment of the data body as an area of discourse.
