Objects #11:
Strange to go from a paperclip to water: can water be an object? Somehow the idea seems to breach rules of evidence or is counter-intuitive in frames surrounding categories. Water is a collective concept and does not easily hold a singular: you can have less water, not fewer. The logical of "a water" is hard to grasp unless you are referring to a defined quantity, such as a bottle of water. As an object, water has few characteristics that make it specific, or ownable, yet ‘my water’ is that which I carry with me to quench my thirst.
