Artist Terry Border Imagines Everyday Objects in Romantic and Risqué Scenarios
Spooning spoons, boogieing sushi, and what bent wire has to do with the mechanism of love.
By Maria Popova
Remember artist Terry Border of Bent Objects fame, who explores the secret life of everyday objects in playful vignettes using simple bent wire? Border is back with Bent Object of My Affection: The Twists and Turns of Love — a charming collection of new 60 bent-wire vignettes, photographed by in which household objects explore the romantic and the risqué. Sweet and kooky, Border’s images are also a light-hearted metaphor for love itself, wherein the ordinary becomes extraordinary. And though Border’s overly punny captions fall flat for me, the images themselves exude enough delight to make it all a treat.
