Do you think that its possible for inanimate objects to feel things? Sure maybe not in the same sense that we as humans do, but we are all made of the same molecules, so why not? Just because something cannot speak or move does not mean that it cannot feel or express emotion. Objects can be far more expressive than we think, especially in the art world.
We usually don't empathize with lifeless objects, perhaps due to a lack of reciprocity. However, it seems I know exactly how a used battery, a run down car, or the countless broken household appliances we have ever thrown away, feels.
