Assemblage (art)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Assemblage is an artistic process. In the visual arts, it consists of making three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions by putting together found objects. [1][2] In literature, assemblage refers to a text “built primarily and explicitly from existing texts in order to solve a writing or communication problem in a new context”.[3] Beatriz Gabrielle De França Silva >< The origin of the artform dates to the cubist constructions of Pablo Picasso c. 1912-1914.[4] The origin of the word (in its artistic sense) can be traced back to the early 1950s, when Jean Dubuffet created a series of collages of butterfly wings, which he titled assemblages d’empreintes. However, both Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso had been working with found objects for many years prior to Dubuffet. They were not alone. Russian artist Vladimir Tatlin creates his “counter-reliefs” in the middle of 1910s. Alongside Tatlin, the earliest woman artist to try her hand at assemblage was Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, the Dada Baroness. In addition, one of the earliest and most prolific was Louise Nevelson, who began creating her sculptures from found pieces of wood in the late 1930s.

Assemblage (composition)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Assemblage refers to a text “built primarily and explicitly from existing texts in order to solve a writing or communication problem in a new context”.[1] The concept was first proposed by Johndan Johnson-Eilola (author of Datacloud) and Stuart Selber in the journal, Computers & Composition, in 2007. The notion of assemblages builds on remix and remix practices, which blur distinctions between invented and borrowed work.
