I suggest you to check the SELF papers at Stanford University.
The papers describe aspects concerning design and implementation of
I am includinng the abstract appearing in the paper

- Abstract. SELF is an object-oriented language for exploratory
programming based on a small number of simple and concrete ideas:
prototypes, slots and behavior. Prototypes combine inheritance
and instantiation to provide a framework that is simpler and more
flexible than most object-oriented languages. Slots unite variables
and procedures into a single construct. This permits the inheritance
hierarchy to take over the function of lexical scoping in conventional
languages. Finally, because SELF does not distinguish state from
behavior, it narrows the gaps between ordinary objetcs, procedures,
and closures. SELF's simplicity and expressiveness offer new insights
into object-oriented computation. -
