During the existence of some objects, representations emerge and mark not only a transit between different individuals and contexts, but the creation of interpersonal bonds linked to memories, feelings and wishes, extending the service life of these objects beyond economic dynamics; a phenomenon that has been called reuse.
Three types of object’s dynamics are identified: mutable objects dynamic, located objects dynamic and seized objects dynamic. This last type of dynamic is the main subject of the study.
Moreover, under the dynamics of reuse, some forms of social and environmental sustainability are visualized, due to the construction of objects exchange networks.
