my own definition of altered art

Altered Art

is a broad term that encompasses many styles and genres of art. At it’s most basic it means using creative techniques and tools to alter and change an item (often found items or items whose obvious use might not be artistic in nature) to give it a new purpose and artistic meaning. Some types of art included in the altered art genre are collage, mixed media, assemblage, decoupage, and photomontage.
