Apparently Common Objects Can Have Uncommon Lives

busch_sm.jpg

Metropolis Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Susan S. Szenasy (how’s that for alliteration) sits down or talks on the phone or emails with Akiko Busch, Metropolis contributor and author of The Uncommon Life of Common Objects. Busch talks about her sons and their ipods, the lethality of cars, and growing up with carved Buddhas on top of English blanket chests.

We like this subtle approach to object fetishism. Busch points out it’s a little weird that people pay so much attention to things.

What I find interesting about design is the way people are emotionally engaged with the inanimate world. It’s a little absurd. It seems to defy some kind of basic logic…

Right there with you.
