A few weeks ago, my friend Nikki and I went to an art installation in La Tuna Canyon. (Thank you for taking me, Nikki!) This art installation titled “Lost and Found LA” is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi. This art technique uses gold to repair broken ceramics, celebrating the pottery’s history rather than trying to hide its cracks. The anonymous artists aimed to create an installation that “reflects on the fragility of the environment, while also alluding to the ever-renewing forces of nature and recovery.”
Here are some of the photos I took of the installation. Hope you enjoy them!
When is time you lost something in LA (physical or intangible), and what positive thing came from that experience? There were countless times that I lost my wallet but every, single time that it was returned to me (with all of my money, cards, etc inside), it renewed my hope in humankind haha.
