"Baudrillard (Baudrillard, 1968) argues that objects have two functions: ”to be put in use and to be possessed”. To me, this account is too simple. I believe that time has the ability to change our personal relationships to objects in different ways. First, I have noticed that something happens to a material object when it becomes part of a history, real or created, or if it is given a name. Thereafter it is no longer just any object, but a thing that holds a memory and now is a part of the owner’s self. The name that the object is given, or the created history it is associated with, is now a part of the new memory that the object holds. From there, time can, continuously, change the feeling we get from the object. This may happen as society changes, as traditions and habits change: maybe this development is even more clear in a material society like ours. Also, in personal possession the “biography” of the object is a part of our own life story, but objects can change hands and become parts of the life stories of others as well. A tension may arise when we speak about personal possession of an object, which could perhaps be described as a kind of jealousy.
