Why Create Artifacts
There are many reasons why people create artifacts. This learning block offers some common reasons and challenges for us to consider additional ones.
For example, a Native American chief may ask a woman in the community to weave a ceremonial basket. From the woman’s point of view, she is creating this artifact for many reasons: to fulfill a request, to make something pleasing to others in the community, to serve a religious or spiritual presence, perhaps to earn merit that will result in economic advantages.
Another example: A boy who lives on an isolated island comes across some empty steel drums that once contained oil. When he taps them, they produce pleasing tones. Soon, he straps them together to create a musical instrument. In addition, he composes tunes he can play for his neighbors. The first reason for doing this could be a natural curiosity and desire to explore. A second reason could be the discovery that he could make something beautiful out of founding objects. A third reason could be the encouragement, praise, and higher status he received in the village as a musician and composer.
