"Assemblage" is the 3-D version of "collage”. "Found object fragments," "discards," or "throwaways" (artist's work to look at: Schwitters, Cornell, Rauschenberg, Bearden, etc.).

These things are organized by their specific elements. The resulting groups are then arranged into compositions of art.

Extending to many cultures of people living in family, religious, work, and various other groups; We could be viewed as a complex living version of "assemblage”(Webster 1. a group of persons or things gathered or collected).

We have “found” each other by chance; either by blood, common goals, or a certain chemistry. These connections help to formulate new ideas, innovations, and even new generations. John Anderson

Check Out Photographer Kelly Stachura.

Kelly photographs a wide range of subjects proving she knows her way around the art of photography. 
My personal favorite is the suite of dancers.
Her dance photos capture the strength, stretch, and balance of the dancers in compositions that suggest motion before and after the click of the camera. She likes to catch the dancer at the end of a phrase in the completion of a pose at full extension.
Respect for their athletic and artistic prowess is evident in each image along with their humanity. 
The feeling and the beauty of artistic expression by the human body is meticulously revealed in explicit detail. Her use of color, composition and soft lighting transform strenuous, challenging work into the smooth, flowing movement of the dance performance. 
Kelly was very well known in high school as a rising star in the visual arts. Her involvement in various artistic activities today present her as an accomplished artist. 
Visit her website and explore the wonders of her expertise.
