“Found Object Art” is defined as art created from objects that are not made for creating art and that usually have functional purposes. Such art often makes one see the ordinary in extraordinary ways.


 Here we see a local rectangles-within-rectangles creation that might meet the test. This creation also might be considered part of the “Temporary” (or “Ephemeral”) Art school, at least in part. It lasted about 20 minutes – until the unknowing but fastidious creator finished a nearby job and put the ladders back into his truck.

 Nonetheless, abstract artists that can find spirituality in geometric forms (as did Piet Mondrian), probably would find intriguing symbolism in this scene with or without the ladders. (Brooklin, Maine) Click on image to enlarge it.
