Assemblage

"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

"10,500 Thanks!"


I hope you have found something useful here. It is fun for me to share my various life experiences, the proud people I meet, and my thoughts on the arts and   education with everyone. It is good to be more open with your colleagues. People sharing their ideas and images help improve the lives and education of students everywhere. Their should be no fear in giving away your special secrets. No-one can replicate what you can do; and one who tries, is a fraud who is easily recognized.

The singer Tony Bennett once said about Frank Sinatra...” He was a genius, he stole from everyone to find his own voice”. 
I have no restrictions on the printing and use of my information in writing and photos from this blog; but one should always credit the source of any material you share or use with others.
One should always think of an “assimilation” or “synthesis” of desperate ideas in combined with ones own special creativity. These ideas should come from a truth within you based on personal experience. One cannot help being influenced by what is seen and heard. Their are many element from fields other than art which are recognizable to the very thing needed in our work. Their are many cross applications between science and art.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog. With over 10,500 page views from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, UkraineUnited Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam, and Venezuela; I am overwhelmed. 

The process of posting on my blog has brought me back in touch with my own work, my own ideas, and 35 years of teaching experience. If you are a teacher, you know how much effort you put into educating your students. Being a teacher is a job that has no end. Students keep recycling through the system and never seem to lose their need for our help, attention, care, and love. I look forward to sharing more, so please stay tuned.

Thanks to all,  John Anderson
