My most recent book is Making Objects and Events: A Hylomorphic Theory of Artifacts, Actions, and Organisms (OUP) and I continue to be interested in metaphysics, artifacts, and social ontology. I am currently working on a cross-genre book to be called A Certain Gesture: Evnine’s Batman Meme Project and Its Parerga!. The work will have the form of an art catalog in which over a hundred memes, made by me using the image of Batman slapping Robin, will be presented as if they were the work of someone else and commented on. The commentaries will mix self-writing with an engagement with themes in the philosophy of language, literary theory, and psychoanalysis, as well as metaphysics and philosophical logic. (You can find out more about this on my website and an associated blog.) I am also writing on some of these issues in a more conventional way.
