What is the lifespan of a potentially repurposable object left on the street in your neighborhood/city/culture? Who is it that will eventually pick up such an item? Municipal/informal trash collector? Local resident? Random passerby?
Where does the discarded object go? Does it end up in the hands of a craftsperson associated with that object (a cobbler, in this case)? Will these shoes re-enter the economy in a repaired form, or will they be disassembled and divided – beads to one craftsperson, pleather straps to another, soles to a third?
