Abstract

Our laws and relations have been founded on ideas of delineating the boundaries of the objects and artefacts that we appropriate and produce. Law, by holding strong to its intrinsic gestures of division and distribution, moulds the shape of interactions. Law manifests itself as a form that gives quality to matter by informing, forming and transforming the interaction of subjects and objects; infusing meaning and significance to our relations. Sharing, in contrast, does not have a principle beyond describing the simultaneous acts of division and distribution; it is simply a communicative act that precedes the meaning that the current socio-legal-economic-technological language requires and asks of the term. Its meaning is perceived only in the contexts in which it emerges as an action. The act of sharing changes the shape of the object (by dividing it into a share); but also disperses its form by propagating its circulation (through the share’s distribution). Sharing is a normative act of division as distribution as formation.
