To collect mindfully rather than to consume mindlessly - that is our ethical pursuit.
We do not acquire objects for status or vanity, but to meet a purpose from within. Objects do not fill, they fulfill. Every object carries intention, even to simply bring us joy.
Object & Us is ultimately about coming home to ourselves. Free of stories and past experiences, 'who we are' is our naked self. While home is inherently within us, we are human - we occupy space. It is not only okay to acquire objects, but it is also essential to living purposefully - so long as we aren’t trying to gain, to get ahead, or to fill a void through our possessions. Once we strip away physical and metaphysical clutter, we can learn to feed our inner home, which in turn helps us to occupy our outer homes (physical body, physical space) with intention.
