Object Permanence – Laura’s website goes live

Update: Fixed the dates.

Laura and I launched the website for her Object Permanence art installation piece that will take place on the Portland State University campus from May 27 – May 29.picture-12

It’s a simple site, but I had forgotten how much fun it is to work on a project-based piece rather than a whole website.

The website is here: Let us know what you think.

Object Permanence is really cool. From Wikipedia’s entry:

Object permanence is the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be seen, heard, or touched. Without this concept, there is no differentiation between the self and world. Objects would have no separate, permanent existence. This is why Piaget argued that object permanence is one of an infant’s most important accomplishments.

  1. Another beautiful website. I wasn’t able to exit the “submit object” page or find out about the talented artist, FYI, but it all looks great!

  2. looks great Ben! i think you have the dates wrong on your blog (or on the website itself)

  3. Thanks for the feedback you guys – David – dates fixed here, good catch.
    Ezra – yes, we need to get a bio up there, good point.
    Regarding being able to exit from that page…hmmm, right. There actually isn’t an exit, since it’s a separate page and not a popup, but that’s very confusing since the home page has popups that look just like that. I’ll have to fix that.
