Over the last year I have been following the local artist Gareth Wild on a very interesting project that consisted in gathering objects found randomly on the street. This project was #Found. Read the Making of #Found blog here.
Since then I have myself become more aware of what surrounds me and the odd objects that one can find in the most obscure and illogical places.
Now, when I see a lonely glove somewhere, or an earring, or a toy, I can’t help but dwell a bit on the history behind that lost object.
I think it is amazing the stories that lost or abandoned objects can tell us. If not their real stories, the ones that we will inevitable imagine for them.
It’s a bit like archaeology in a sense, I think.
Thank you Gareth for this amazing piece!
