Junk Art

 Junk Art is the formation of sculptures from found objects or junk. The term found art—more commonly found object or ready made—describes art created from the undisguised, but often modified, use of objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function. Found art derives its identity as art from the designation placed upon it by the artist. A specific sub-genre of found art is known as trash art or junk art. These works are primarily comprised from components that have been discarded. Often they come quite literally from the trash.
