Objects always have connotations embedded in them which an evolve over time. In textiles we work a lot with style and trends so this lecture was really interesting to see how an iconic pair of boots has many subcultural scenes. It also highlighted how brands have their own connotations as well and usually what ever they created falls under similar connotations.
This lecture was real insight into Cath’s research and I felt that the lecture really linked in with the work I do in textiles. It will help me think more about the connotations of everything when I’m designing or analysing for an essay.
