What means attribute?

Attribute is a term which can function as a noun or a verb. The noun describes an object or an animal typically associated with a specific person; while a work of art may be attributed to a particular artist based on its style.

Found Object

Found object is the term used for a man-made or natural object, or object fragment which an artist either finds or buys, keeping it for inspiration or as a work of art. The artist may also modify it, or use it for collage or assemblage.

Embossing

Embossing is the technique of decorating or creating images with a raised design. Artists often change the shape of paper to create raised edges with many levels. The process is worked from the reverse side of the paper, using a template and sanded dowel.

Entropy

Entropy is the inevitable deterioration of a society or system. In art, it was popularized by artist Robert Smithson, whose use of it in New York in the 1960s was in reference to artwork he considered was static and simplified. He targeted contemporary minimalist artists.
