Objectophilia is a love of objects so intense that individuals form emotional relationships with inanimate things.

We love our computers, find our cars sexy, and lust over shoes, while driving the economy and the planet to the brink of orgiastic collapse. This exhibition asks artists to examine their relationship to these commercially manufactured items and icons, and the impact on the world around us.
