Memory and Story of Everyday Object
The value of an object is more than it’s physical appearance and functionality. It is in fact the way object communicate with people, which create emotions, stories, or memories that make them unique and endure. How can people preserve things? What’s the relationship between physical object and individual person? How can objects tell stories? How can we read stories on the object that don’t belong to us?
There are five important key words that make Everyday Object become great and remarkable—- People, story, emotion, time, and “you”. Objects were used by a person (you), and object also communication with you and other people to form memories/stories/ emotions in a period of time.
There are many communication tools in our life. Writing, design, music, photography are those people are familiar with in their daily life. However, not only these media can do the work of communication, but objects can do it as well. I want to refer back to Lauren Rediness, her emotion and sensitivity that expressed in her word and how she use art word in her book, which lost oral in her writing but increase participation with audience.
I want to relate my idea with curating and museum experience. Eventually I want make a business model or a website. Since there are a lot of stories/memories/history in our daily life with objects that we may not able to tell/say. I think virtual space would be a good platform to make it happen. People telling stories by curating their objects, and people read stories by looking at objects.
