A man who lives around his stuff.

“If I use a refrigerator to refrigerate, it is a practical mediation: it is not an object but a refrigerator. And in that sense I do not posses it. A  utensil is never possessed, because a utensil refers one to the world; what is possessed is always an object abstracted from its function and thus brought into relation-ship with the subject. In this context all owned objects partake of the same abstractness (…) together (they) make up the system through which the subject strives to construct a world, a private totality.”

Jean Baudrillard, 1996, The System of Objects
