Ephemeral Objects maps the foundational components of object-oriented programming (which represents concepts as objects) onto the construction and interpretation of non-material art objects, such as performance and social practice. Through a year-long series of articles, the blog will develop a framework for critical and aesthetic appreciation of ephemeral art in the post-material world.
