Sidewalk Kintsukuroi — Rachel Sussman
"Sidewalk kintsukuroi (or kintsugi) expands on the traditional Japanese art of kintsukuroi ("to repair with gold"; performed on ceramics), taking it — literally — out into the streets."
"At the heart of the idea of such "golden repair" is that something is made more beautiful for having been broken."
In-ground installations are made with tree sap-based resin and a combination of bronze and 23.5 carat gold dust.
