Hyperobjects

April 13, 2018

Ballroom Marfa is in the research phase for Hyperobjects, a group exhibition scheduled to open in spring 2018. The project is co-organized by Dr. Timothy Morton and Ballroom Curator Laura Copelin. Hyperobjects takes its name and organizing principles from Morton’s 2013 book. In Morton’s writing, hyperobjects are “entities that are so massively distributed in time and space as to transcend spatiotemporal specificity, such as global warming, styrofoam, and radioactive plutonium.”
