Bent Objects Art
Terry Border used to be a commercial photographer, but he wanted to change direction in life. So in 2006, he started his bent wire art “bent objects” project. The project concerns adding wire to ordinary objects found around the house to help them pose as living characters.
Usually the characters tell a story. Terry found that people liked his work, so he decided to create a new project called “Wiry Limbs, Paper Backs,” a series in which old books are turned into characters of themselves. He then photographs the pictures of still life. It is wonderful humorous art.
Mr Border is working on a children’s book called Philomel, which he hopes to publish very soon.
Here are a few of his wire bending projects…
