The medium is the message

Generally collage refers to a technique of placing a number of items together onto a flat surface and using glue to create a composition.

Linked and often attributed to Pablo Picasso, the term originated in Paris during the early 20th century.

‘Collage (from the French: coller, to glue) is artwork made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.’*

*Kind of paraphrased from Wikipedia


Thoughts; What I like about using collage is the ability to draw upon an existing narrative.
