bricolage


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

bricolage

the process of transforming the meaning of objects or symbols through novel uses or unconventional arrangements of unrelated things. The term is used in CULTURAL STUDIES; see FASHION.

Bricolage is a French term and was introduced, in a somewhat different context, by Claude LÉVI-STRAUSS in The Savage Mind, and subsequently used by his translators who could find no suitable English equivalent. He used it to refer to the (bricoleur's) practice of creating things out of whatever materials come to hand – the structure and the outcome being more important than the constituent parts which themselves are changed through the act of creation.
