For Sherry Turkle We think with the objects we love; we love the objects we think with In Evocative Objects Turkle collects writings by scientists humanists artists and designers that trace the power of everyday things These essays reveal objects as emotional and intellectual companions that anchor memory sustain relationships and provoke new ideas These days scholars show new interest in the importance of the concrete This volume's special contribution is its focus on everyday riches the simplest of objects an apple a datebook a laptop computer are shown to bring philosophy down to earth The poet contend This collection of essays about the meaning of objects is both provocative and meditative Introduced by the Sherry Turkle best known for her work in the digital world these essays focus on the role that the tangible world plays in understanding our own feelings as well as the perspectives of others Particularly poignant for me was the essay about the silver pin an object that defined the author's image of her mother Imbued with both the pain of loss and the beauty of youth the pin evokes stories of family history and the challenges of parent child relationships These essays provided me with a myriad of perspectives on how important our physical world is in understanding the cultures around us Though none of the objects described is inherently valuable each of the authors shares how they have infused their own object with a meaning that is both very personal and universal It gave me pause to think about museums as places that hold tangible objects in stewardship for everyone In museums focus has traditionally been on the meaning of the collections both to the individuals associated with the object as well the culture in which they were a part But these essays got me thinking that shared authorship a new buzz word is increasingly important because the power of objects is not just in the original interpretation but in each viewer’s individual interpretation as well Imagination allows people to make a personal connection to an object which then continues the cultural significance of that object beyond its initial meaning Layers of understanding allow ownership of collections by the greater community which means the objects continue to live while in protective custody of museums
