Example Defiant Object: idonthaveyourmarbles

Anything that is difficult to classify or categorize could be described as a defiant object, a simple photograph might be defiant depending on the context.  We are collecting some examples of artworks, compositions, research outputs etc. that we consider to be defiant, and as part of this project we will be creating a typology of objects or research outputs to aid repository managers and those depositing research into institutional repositories.

This example was sent to me from the University of the West of England repository.  The item type  is ‘Show/Exhibition.’

idonthaveyourmarbles by J. Dean and K.Klega

Here is the abstract from the UWE repository:

“An international ongoing collaborative project operating within a pre-existing economic framework (ebay), in which artefacts are exhibited alongside their virtual counterparts.”

Screenshot of the ebay part of the work showing the items listed on 29th March 2012.

These items are really for sale and the project blog states that it will continue at least until 100 items are sold.
