Story of Objects – a poll – please help me learn more about how we relate to special objects in our life

I seem to have been hacked by someone – I apologise – and there are no free galaxies here!

Let’s try again….

As many people will know, I have been exploring the potential of The Story of Objects for a couple of years. Ultimately, the aim is to create an online social network for ‘things’. Feedback so far has been very positive, and the greatest pleasure is derived from sharing stories about our objects.

When I ask people if they have something – an object –  they keep with them, regardless of relocating homes, almost everyone says yes. Some people say that the thing they have is not ‘worthy’ of research – and I always respond by saying this is not about worthiness, it’s about how we endow objects with meaning and form attachments to them, for whatever reason.

There are some 30 second films for you to see here and a Facebook group here. And more information on this website too.

I’d be grateful if you would complete the simple poll  – do share with friends, the more results the more useful the learning for me. It will take only seconds to do.

Thank you!
