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.’

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