objet trouvé – “forsaken steps”

During a drone expedition with captain AR recently, I came across this abandoned shoe on the field. I felt an artistic texture and shade on it the moment I glanced at them and is the basis of this fine art piece. I’m titling this piece  “forsaken steps“.

Interestingly, contrary to what I thought, these abandoned items are valued and appreciated in artistic circles in a wide variety of themes. A common one is something called “objet trouvé”. It’s a French word that basically refers to a natural or discarded object found by chance and is given an aesthetic value by an artist. A recent artistic trend is to refer to these items as “Trashion”, which is a direct reference to trash that emanates art and fashion. Identity for the item is normally derived from the designation placed on them by its wear and tear, condition it is left in, and often the context it is placed into. So, “forsaken steps” would probably be the first art piece from The Border of a Mind Illustration Studios, that directly uses objet trouve concept, which as I noted above is to describe art created from undisguised, but often modified, objects or products that are not normally considered materials from which art is produced, primarily owing to the fact that they already have a non-art function to it.

Other artistic themes from the studio include:

Alternate adaptation of “The Burning Man
