This week’s featured art(ist) is Terry Border!
Border’s classifies his work as ‘Bent Objects’. Essentially, Border takes found objects and by adding arms, legs and other elements of physicalization, creates new things. Border loves puns and wordplay, so the majority of his pieces have a humorous bend. I love his first book Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things and his second, Bent Object of My Affection: The Twists and Turns of Love is also fun. I personally think the books are more interesting than the blog overall. I left my copy of Secret Life in the lounge where I work, and I always see people flipping through and chuckling to themselves.
It’s not a traditional artform per say, but it’s certainly interesting!
