Found Object Assemblage

 
"Can works be made which are not "of art""?
Marcel Duchamp
 
"Found Object" describes art created by familiar objects or products that are not normally considered materials from which art is made. 
 
My assemblages are composed of vintage scrap materials and oddities that I've obtained from ongoing scavenge hunts. They tend to be abstract, geometric in nature and somewhat architectural.
My intention is generally not about representing a theme but creating contemporary visuals with a "feel" that honors the original time stamp. 
I often wonder about the origins and people that utilized these objects and how they would perceive their final destination.
