LOST & FOUND: Assembling New Life from a Throw-Away Culture

In this world of easy come, easy go we seem to have no patience or time for things beyond their initial use. This throw-away culture does not encourage the making or fixing of things. Therefore, there is a surplus of stuff readily available for repurposing into art.
Assemblage is the art of combining objects from many origins into a creative piece. With this art form new characters and stories take shape from discarded objects found in trash cans, thrift stores, swap meets, and the dark corners of garages.
