The three objects I selected to use from the urban journey are a rock/pebble, a receipt, and something that looks like a tube but was unidentifiable. All these objects are unique in their own way and have their own story. For example, the rock is very dimensional, its color is white with some grays, and is filled with dirt from the place it was found at. The story it has that I can interpret, is that one day a group of construction workers were fixing the street and while they were doing their job a few pebbles and rocks started to fall in different directions and one of them landed on the sidewalk for me to find. The second object is the receipt, I found this item on the grass of a buildings yard. It was crumpled up and filled with dirt. The story that can be perceived from this is, one day a person came out of a store and while they were walking they crumpled up the receipt and threw it on the ground. It was then kicked around and swept by the wind to a bunch of different places while getting a bit dirty. Finally, the third item which is the tube thingy. I found this item on the edge of the sidewalk where pedestrians can hook their bikes so they can return for them later. This item looks like its a torn part from the full thing that’s why its unidentifiable. To describe it, its black, about the size of a fun size snickers and its dirty. The story that can be told about this item is that, as a person was riding their bike one day they accidentally broke off a piece from their bike and while they were hooking their bike on the pole to rest that certain piece fell off and was left their to collect dirt. Overall, the three items were interesting to work with even though they all were filled with dirt and germs from the street.
