The way we communicate has a direct impact on our impressions of the world this thesis argues that the various forms of abstraction represented by language and the focus on objectivity in development of explicit knowledge have created the impression that the world of inanimate things is a static one. Through both text and furniture objects, this thesis proposes a metaphoric re-languaging of the way we understand our objects, from nouns to verbs as a means to enhance our interactions with them and through them with ourselves and others.
