The Museum of Found Objects is a project created by artists Mirjam Linschooten and Sameer Farooq. The museum is going to have exhibits in Toronto, Canada and Istanbul, Turkey. The Museum of Found Objects describes the project as "an examination of a culture through its objects." It is always interesting to see art that reflects today's society and the way it is represented through random items.

The Museum of Found Objects also explains that "our fascination lies in using a range of physical and cultural contexts to fuel alternative ways of seeing, and our main resources are objects." Even though everyday objects are used without a second thought, most would be lost without them. The clever artists are aiming to understand the unseen.
