a material thing that can be seen and touched; a goal or purpose
The object. It just is. Or is it? There’s irony in the dual meaning of the word – it suggests both “thing” and “purpose.” Objects allude to stories, and those narratives convey intention.
Objects require us. We breathe life into them simply by being ourselves. We are not just the curators, but also the conveyers of meaning. We transmit the stories of each object in order to tell our own.
I’m Paige, an interior designer + artist.
I’m also a person with thoughts and feelings and imperfections and woes. I am driven by visual culture, but I’m more interested in the feelings evoked by aesthetics than simply the presentation.
I created Object & Us to excavate deeper into the meaning of the objects we surround ourselves with. Let's use this awareness to collect mindfully rather than to consume mindlessly.
