- In Object Oriented Ontology, an object is anything. An apple, a weather system, a feeling, economics. Big objects that we cannot 'hold' in our mind are called hyperobjects.
- It is also articulated that Objects are activated by your encounter with them
- Donald Judd talked about Specific objects instead of sculpture, because sculpture is representational but his interests were non-representational.
- Objects have scale. See Scaling vs scalebound architecture
Objects become particularly interesting when considered in the context of digital Technology.
- Let's consider a piece of digtial art. We might think of that as an object, but in reality it is a certain arrangement of assets, hardware and software. Where does the object begin and end when it's reliant on so many other objects to perform its objecthood?
- Every data point requires additional data elsewhere saying how to interpret and read it - otherwise it is just abstract data not the object.
