"Through the items that we interact with in our everyday life ,there is a potential for them to not only inform how we interact with the physical object, but also how we interact with each other around it. An object whose function helps to instruct our interactions would assist in deepening our connectivity and sense of community, while also allowing us to break from the new traditions of reclusiveness we now practice. Learning openness and empathy have become essential to how we interact with the world; these traits begin in the home and continue throughout the structure of our community."
