I’m trying to learn for my Social Science class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Interview someone about an object that is important to them from their home. Consider the several dimensions through which we can understand this object. How does it relate to the person’s past, his or her social status and economic situation, his or her sense of aesthetics, and how it embodies his or her aspirations? Consider, for example, how the object embodies aspects that make them special or different as an individual or about the things they hold in high regard.
Write 2-3 sentences to describe the object and what it tells you about the individual that you are interviewing. Note: if you are not able to interview another person, do this activity with one of your own objects. What does it mean to you? What does it communicate to other people about you?
