To me, destruction in art is pushing the boundaries of how art is supposed to look and how the work might change as a result of the destruction process; the beauty of the final piece is found inside the destruction.

Destruction as an art form

Destruction of the everyday objects

I found enjoyment in destroying what was around me and what I could find on the street. When I came across a shopping basket, I decided to hit it with a baseball bat, completely changing the shape of the basket and creating an illusion effect. When I destroyed the umbrella, the fabric created a rippling effect, symbolising having a bad day and nothing going right.

Continuing this exercise, I’m curious what destruction process will occur next after discovering the found object to destroy.
