kintsugi

the prompt: the art of kintsugi dates back to the fifteenth century and is the process of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with a gold, silver, or other metal variant. this restorative process calls to attention breaks that have developed over time through use and accidents. these mended pieces draw notice to the beauty of these faults rather than shame. like these broken lines we all carry memories and moments that need mending.  

take a memory from your past - a defining moment and one that speaks to your identity. write a poem with a length of your choosing about this moment. design this piece considering typography and content in conjunction with one another.  

find the breaks and let them breathe.
