The significance of these collections is to present the social interactions between people and objects. The concept for the idea of social interaction between people and objects is to present the functionality of the interaction instead of putting the main focus on the object alone. Artist, Carrie Ida Edinger borrows from material culture methodologies to contribute to the forming of the collections. The context of the collection is defined by social and culturally based research as well as experiential research of the interactions. Each of the collections contributes to how fundamental the interaction between a person and an object is to consistent consumption in the material world. Several social media options are available to choose from on this page to stay updated on the recent additions and public access to the collections.
