Abstract

This paper draws from empirical data to identify three ontological characteristics which distinguish digital objects from the singular, stable, inert and spatiotemporally fixed material objects documented in prior research, highlighting their transience, fluidity and instability, and considering how and in whose interests these characteristics are assembled and might be re-assembled.
