Found Art Photography
Found art iconography is entirely lacking in intentionality. Unlike most art, it is not the work of a thoughtful, individual mind, but of multiple "authors" who are not engaged in conscious collaboration and do not intend to create a work of art. Evanescence is important, too, because found art inevitably ceases to exist, erased by authorities or covered by additional artistic (or non-artistic) interventions.
