“We begin to confront the thingness of objects when they stop working for us. When the drill breaks, when the car stalls, when the windows get filthy… The story of objects asserting themselves as things, then, is the story of a changed relation to the human subject and thus the story of how the thing really names less an object than a particular subject-object relation.”
