[This paper traces the emergence of a new mathematical object (a certain duality transform) in the social-mathematical space. The object’s “biography” is based on an ethnographic observation of the research conducted by two leading mathematicians at Tel Aviv University. The paper argues for the feasibility and necessity of such “laboratory studies” of mathematical knowledge and practice. Based on an Actor-Network approach, it describes the object’s coming into being as a series of translations the object has to go through in order to form new ties and modify existing ones. The research shows that the process of production of the new mathematical object is neither “purely” mathematical, nor “purely” social. It is a combination of factors that are not easily classified in either category, factors that together shape the new duality transform. In place of the traditional classification into social elements and natural elements, a story is suggested which follows the study-objects wherever they go, disregarding categorical-boundaries.]
