Found objects are an irresistible way to express ourselves, especially if we find it difficult to do so in regular discourse. We can find our voice as we find the objects we use to craft our creations. One can quickly pick up whatever is at hand without knowing what we will be forming with our finds, we can sit and contemplate for a while, then carefully choose exactly what is in our minds, or we can engage others in the search for objects as our art is evolving. Those, and an infinite variety of other methods, guide us on our thoughtful or carefree way to creating what are masterpieces of emotional and mental effort.
And thus there is a way messages can be conveyed using anything other than spoken words or conventionally written ones. Whether you are directing your message to a single target or your message is general one, your art may have more impact than if you used a traditional way to express yourself. Though you may think you are exposing your inner self less, you are actually exposing more of yourself by sharing your creative methods as well as your message with your audience; people are usually quite good at picking up the underlying feelings and thoughts behind another’s actions.
