Photos: Second "Found Art" Festival in Qazvin

Photos by Hamideh Shafieiha, Mehr News Agency

The second festival of "found art" is was held in the city of Qazvin in Iran. These photos show some of the artists at work along with their artwork presented at the festival.

The term found art -- more commonly found object or readymade -- describes art created from undisguised, but often modified, objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function. Marcel Duchamp was the originator of this in the early 20th century.

 

Found Art is also considered ECO friendly since it is created using recycled materials.
