To appropriate is to borrow. Appropriation is the practice of creating new work by taking a preexisting image from another source and transforming it or combining it with new ones. The three dimensional version is the use of found objects. A found object is an existing object- often a mundane, manufactured product-given a new identity as an artwork or part of an artwork
