This art movement, Object Trouvé, which started in the 1910s and which was officially coined by Marcel Duchamp in 1915, is still a very interesting and up-to-date way to create art. The main idea is to modify and convert found objects into pieces of art. From looking at Damion Silver’s series Assemblages, it’s obvious that he’s quite a fan of Marcel Duchamp. He honours his legacy by assembling unwanted wooden materials of different origins and shapes into unique three-dimensional masterpieces.
