Rob Walker explores the impact storytelling has on the perception of worth.
The store values the exchange of an item's heritage and encourages passing money from the sale along to charity.
Rob Walker started off the day at PSFK's NYC Conference on Friday, April 9 with his presentation on Significant Objects, a project aimed at exploring the fluid relationship between objects and value.
What do a tiny jar of mayonnaise, a monkey hand puppet and an old pencil case have in common? Rob Walker speaks on the value-added of object storytelling.
Combining storytelling with physical computing, interactive artists Georg Reil and Kathy Scheuring have created an installation that shapes the way we think about interacting with objects.
Rob Walker will be one of the speakers at our upcoming PSFK Conference. Rob is the author of Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are, and his New York Times column "Consumed" offers a unique view of consumption, design and marketing.
