“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Ecological Toys with Bristles

Thingworld! Because of looking after my lovely small humanoids I couldn't make it to Beijing for the opening of this, but I finally got the book, wow. Zhang Ga, you did an amazing job.

The book has a nice essay (I think) by me in it called “Ecological Toys with Bristles.”

And two essays by Graham: a new one on the thing in itself and a reprint of his 1999 talk that first used the phrase object-oriented philosophy. Nice one.

OOO is going everywhere in art right now.

Of course OOO is everywhere in Art, art itself is object-oriented. The two modes of activity reinforce each other in a self-perpetualizing loop.
