Through the process of conceptualizing a carrier for small objects, I realized that a dual-entity product concept could potentially exist as both a physical good and informational presence. Such a product could in effect exist in one or more informational and/or physical formats simulaneously. Many consumer products already exist in this form, wherein initial acquisition of certain goods precludes access to correlated information structures and cultural practices activated via their efficaciousness in cultural and information spaces. Bruce Sterling identifies this paradigm of consumer product manufacture as 'Spimes'. Part of the potential utility of such products could see them being used as amplifiers of the ability of people to effectively impart emotional communication onto valued others. Would such ambient goods be more like art than industrial articles or are the affective capacities of art irreducible to the rote replicability of industrially mass-produced objects?
