On my urban journey I came across three artifacts that have a relationship of having unique characteristics. I’ve found a piece of tree bark, a bolt and a plastic screw. The tree bark is the biggest artifact from the bunch. The shape of the bark is both organic and geometric. The tree bark resembles a parallelogram but has bumps that give off an organic look. It has a smooth texture and probably came from an old tree since it was pretty brittle to pressure. The bolt is the smallest artifact and it has a geometric shape. The shape of the bolt is like a square on top of a cylinder. The bolt looks to be jagged and rusty. I found the bolt near a lamp post which is most likely its place of origin. The plastic screw has an organic shape and looks to be worn out.Although the origins of the screw is hard to trace, I feel like the screw is some type of compartment to a backpack. Regardless of how different these artifacts are, they are all seem to be in a worn out condition.
