Establishing Longer Lasting Relationships of Ownership and Awareness
HARDLINKING refers to the connections between electronic media and physical objects, something that might be useful when wanting to know the whereabouts of an object, like your furniture for example. Tracking furniture might seem like a crazy idea but if you think about all the IKEA furniture that often moves around and the people that get to share it at different points then tracking might be something useful to establish connections between these users. Tracking provides an opportunity to better understand the role objects play in our daily lives, where they come from and where they might end up, it’s all part of our life cycles and theirs too, and if we are able to understand these connections we can only end up with a more transparent living and thus a better future.
