My husband told me he had created "accidental art," and showed me a paintbrush that had gotten stuck in resin. Its gravity defying position did inspire awe.
I loved the idea of accidental art, where you are aware and open enough to notice when a mistake has created value.
When I told my husband I was going to blog about this, he brought out more pieces of his accidental art. He had a collection of it.
When I went to photograph the art, I realized they needed placards to take them to the next level. With the series name of "Stuck," the art started to work on a metaphorical level. The placards made me realize how packaging and presentation can add to the value of a product.
Are you overlooking the value of what a mistake created?
Can you package yourself or your product so that it commands more respect?
