CITATION:

For I concur with Carter (2008) when he states that:

“…all these materials, all these things, can be used to generate effects, whether it’s power, authority or agency. So, if we look at social worlds in this way, almost all our social relations are mediated through material artefacts of one type or another [and in] conclusion, then, material objects – whether they’re machines, buildings, books, computers – all contribute to the building of ordered social worlds and it’s not a question of whether the social or the material determines the other. Rather, it’s by considering the social and the material simultaneously in all their complexity that we have a chance of understanding social worlds…”

In his explanation regarding the framework of why we need artefacts in the social world because I also think society needs to be collocate.
