In psychology, object permanence refers to the understanding that objects continue to exist independent of ourselves, even when they are not able to be perceived. Within that construct, an object may evolve and change, from whole to broken, lost to found, or even exist simultaneously as more than one thing. The material reality of the object might be different than what is expected or visually understood. In Object Permanence we ask how does our perception of an object change as we observe and study it? And how does our perception of the object inform the truth of the object itself?
