Enviroart Readymades The concept of "ready made" art or "found object art
was pioneered by Marcel Duchamp
His work entitled "fountain" was simply
a urinal which he signed his autograph on He is quoted saying, ""The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act." Found object art can take many forms, it can be created
with new or used materials. The choice of materials however,
brings a new level of meaning to the work. Environmental art uses the "ready made" environment
as its medium.
Artists will either move around elements of the earth itself,
or use other materials to enhance the natural environment Christo and Jean Claude are a married couple who create large public
environmental sculptures using existing landscapes, and enhancing them with
simple materials in large quantities.

Robert Smithson His work "Spiral Jetty" from 1970 inspired many modern artists
to manipulate and enhance their natural environment Today, contemporary artists are taking elements of found object art
and environmental art, and putting them together to create social commentary
works Vaughn Bell Created a series of humourous installations
depicting a world where humans cared about plants as much
as they cared for their pets Jane Ingram Allen Travles aorund the world creating site specific
environmentally friendly sculptures such as this one, done in china called "blue river". It is a "river" made up of handmade biodegradable paper mulched with blue wildflower seeds, running the length of a field.
The work that truly inspired our project is the Pittsburgh
RiverCubes Project A group of local artists decided to clean up the river and create awareness through sculpture. They gathered in the park and collected materials from the river.
Their materials were as varied as shopping carts, towels, garbage, babyseats, and old bicycles. They then cleaned the materials and reworked them into sculptural forms which were placed along the walking trails by the river's edge where the materials were found.
