How Are Things? Summary


How Are Things? by Roger-Pol Droit

Can we learn anything from the objects that surround us - the things we use in everyday life? If you look closely, yes. They may ignore us, they mostly outlive us, but they are the secret sharers of our days, as close to us as our spouses, our pets, our bodies, our selves. Things coexist with us, they store meanings for us, but do they inhabit the same world? Are they alive or dead? Can we make friends with them? During the course of one year Roger-Pol Droit assigned himself an adventure: to keep a cross-border record of his meetings with unremarkable things: sunglasses, an alarm clock, a chest of drawers, a train ticket, a statue, a wheelbarrow, a bottle-opener...This book is the diary of that quest.
