Objectified

Objectified is a documentary that explores the relationships we have with the objects in our lives. It delves not only into the objects and how we interact with them but also the design process and the people who design them. It’s an interesting look at how we have such a complex relationship with everyday objects, and how some of the objects were brought into being. This is the second part of Gary Hustwit’s ‘design trilogy’ – the first being a documentary on Helvetica and the third being a look at how we interact with cities. Hustwit describes the film as being about ‘personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.’ Having watched it a couple of times now, I’d agree. It’s a fascinating look at industrial design today and I’d highly recommend it to anyone interested. It is available here.
