Digital II - this is why (see video & links) we are going to make a collage ....

Bewilderingly, it's commonly overlooked and viewed as a simplistic, or clumsy way of working - but in actual fact - it's a fantastically creative tool, and a great method to make images, just ask Raoul Hausmann or Kurt Schwitters.

Collage, unlike so many other ways of working today - has at at its heart - improvisation - a kind of visual jazz - where you don't really know which way it will go or where it will end.

Make sure you make an effort to bring interesting source materials to class, as I will notice.
