Abstract: What are "things" and why do they "matter"? Why is it important to concern ourselves with things beyond their instrumental possibilities for us? This thesis first explores "objects" and "things" as presented to the reader in early modernliterature, such as Alexander Pope�s mock-heroic poem, "The Rape of the Lock," and sheds light on the importance of the inclusion of these "things" in the literature of the eighteenth century. Subsequently the project expands into a visual analysis of "things," their meanings, significance, and capabilities in our everyday life. An exhibition of art objects and visual representation forces the viewer to reconsider the immense role that "things" play in our world and realize that there are lessons to be learnt through the reflection of our society in "objects."
