The definition of "assemblage" is "a work of art made by grouping found or unrelated objects". I enjoy taking said objects (old photos, antique papers, butterfly wings and other bits of ephemera) out of their normal settings and rearranging them into new, cohesive pieces that tell a story. This allows me to share my fascination of things past with present day society and allow a bit of commentary on the absurd. In a society where disposability is king, gathering these elements together from the dusty drawers and boxes they have been relegated to allows me to breathe new life into them and make them "useful" once again.
