In addition to the way of expressing art from the past to the present, diversity of different methods and techniques are seen. The art world underwent a great change under the influence of modernism in the 20th century and lost its “Art object” uniqueness. As a result, painting and sculpture moved away from classical art understanding. The art formations of the period not only changed the production techniques and theories in art, but also changed the work of art and the place where it is exhibited. With the mechanization, the increase in mass production and the desire to consume different products brought the concept of object and waste-garbage phenomenon. Although it may seem like a current problem, this waste-garbage problem has always been the biggest problem of humanity since the early civilization. With the development of technology, the number of objects that qualify as garbage has been removed and it has become the material of art. In this article, the position of waste objects that have lost their function in contemporary art practices is discussed. In addition, it was aimed to analyze the artists' processes of transforming these objects into artworks by using the accumulation method, their techniques and their plastic approach to the subject.
