materials: vestigial piece of Los Angeles, wood, flock, static grass, paint
While walking along the streets of Los Angeles I saw a chunk of broken curb from a no parking zone. The diligent road crews had obviously noticed this issue and taken action by painting the broken remainder of the curb red, and abandoning the chunk to its fate a couple feet away. I fit the piece back into place from which it had fallen satisfied by my small act of putting things right, and promptly forgot about it for well over a year. Until I needed something heavy.
