The sixth issue of The Funambulist Magazine about “Object Politics,” similarly to its third issue (January-February 2016), dedicated to “Clothing Politics,” is dedicated to a scale of design that, sometimes, goes unnoticed in the examination of this relation: the scale of objects. Our bodies are surrounded by them, wear them, use them, and eat them. They are all precisely designed, and are involved in complex manufacturing systems, yet we often fail to address the political intensity of our interaction with them.
