This article is a preliminary examination on the experience of relation with physical and conceptual objects in space and how this relation generally affects broad-based action in regard to human rights violations or environmental exploitation. The article suggests that a felt awareness arising from an understanding of interconnectedness is often inhibited or obscured due to an inscribed logic emanating from industrial capitalism. This logic broadly dominates the individual and commonly shared spaces, and creates a distance that inhibits a felt relation with the life-sustaining aspects of objects from developing. The article explores how humans construct value and a commensurate morality towards objects, and how the neoliberal logic suppressing notions of interconnectedness is inhibiting the capacity of the institutional human rights and environmental domains to engender broad-based action. The article critiques this logic by drawing on logic emanating from indigenous spaces, where certain indigenous ways of object-imagining and relation more clearly reveal social and environmental interconnectedness, providing instructive lessons on the connection between a felt relation and responsiveness.
