Robert Rauschenberg created the term "Random Order" implying that there is an undeniable connection between certain images and objects.  He also began a theorem called "Combine Painting" in where he stated that "A pair of socks is no less suitable to make a painting with than wood, nails, turpentine, oil and fabric."  So based off of these two ideas, here is a gallery of works that are created using found objects spread across many different formats and media, but that all express their individual goals through use of images or objects or both, in an nontraditional manner.
