How do we understand objects?

2016 Teğet Contemporary Art Exhibition 2016 Istanbul Design Biennial

Every day we see and use thousands of objects with a lot of hidden information in them. Every door that we open, every tile on a pedestrian way that we step on, every t-shirt that we wear have designed by some people for some reasons. However, do we actually ‘know’ these objects? A more important question is how can we live with these millions of objects without knowing them? Even a dustbin that we use without questioning has a huge history, which has gone along with the history of humanity. On the other side, how would it be if we think about all of them when we come across? Would we find ourselves completely lost after a while?
