Humans thrive on materials to fulfil daily needs and wants. They develop relationships of interdependence with things and exchange them to create social relationships and to fulfil obligations. Peering into the deep past, starting millions of years ago, humans and their ancestors worked materials such as stone to make tools, and with time produced things for beautification, and to fulfil symbolic functions.
