Bricolage

Bricolage

“In the practical arts and the fine arts, bricolage is the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available, or a work created by such a process. The term is borrowed from the French word bricolage, which refers to amateur repair and DIY maintenance work (the definition of le bricolage, in French, corresponds exactly to that of the tinkering). Someone who practices bricolage is called a bricoleur.” via Wikipedia
