When I speak of connectivity, I am referring to relationships that objects have to one another and why they are the shape, material and size that they are. But there is also the relationship that humans have with objects.
Objects are entirely different in how they touch us. The relationship that we create with an object, it doesn’t really matter what the object is, is elemental. Citizen Kane’s sled, Rosebud, reverberated in his mind for reasons that we could speculate on until the end of time.
I have a similar sense about English furniture. It is almost a belief system where I trust intrinsically in what I am looking at. My mechanic has that feeling for cars, something I do not nor ever will share. It is the best part of being in the tactile world.
