After the general class overview
and the introductions by all of us, we went downstairs for a collage slide show. We saw the works of some of the collage greats - Hoch, Schwitters, Ray, Duchamp, Raushenburg, and Matise. This gave us an overview and a bit of history of the technic to prepare us for our first assignment. I had heard about this one - 50 collages in one week. "50 Variations on a Theme." Create a series of 50 related variations on a single theme using visual collage an or text as a means to express ech variation and to further understand the conceptual potential of that particular theme or idea.
Hmmmm,well ok then, I guess it's time to get busy.
