Dwell Conversations: Objectified in America
Objectified in America: Design, Consumerism and Sustainability in Our Changing Economy
The story of America for the past 60 years is essentially tied to the story of our stuff. From cars to clothes to refrigerators that simulate the Arctic better than, well, the Arctic, we as a culture love our objects. But as economic and environmental tides shift, we're faced with the fact that we simply can't continue as we have been. You might rightly argue that we've designed our way into this mess, but can we design our way out? Join Dwell editor Aaron Britt and our panel of thought-leaders for a discussion that touches on how we relate to the objects in our lives, how they shape the world around us, and what we can do to about it.
