We explore a form of object-oriented messaging in the context of an ownership tree, where owners can intercept messages sent to their transitively-owned objects. If all access to an object is mediated by its owner (owners-as-accessors), then we call such an object a situated object. We discuss how situated objects can offer another perspective on the perennial separation-of-concerns problem in object-oriented programs.
