On Collage & Photomontage
I have been thinking about collage today. We all seem to love collage (if done well), whether we are designers, artists or anybody, really.
Collage is actually the sincerest form of “cutting, pasting & plundering” in the sense that you ‘borrow’ any preexisting graphic, illustration, pattern, paper or newspaper that you can find and reassemble it into something new. It is the truest method of taking something and making it your own.
That method of working seems to be fine and accepted within the arts and within design.
Or are there any boundaries?
