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

Thank You for 6000+Pageviews


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 colleagues. People sharing 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 do with the same degree of passion, research, and intensity; and your thoughts and ideas are based on personal history and experience. People recognize the "real deal, so always credit the source. If you pass on good ideas, you will be credited for the same genius for it's recognition.

I have no restrictions on the printing and use of my information in writing and photos from this blog; The singer Tony Bennett once said about Frank Sinatra...” He was a genius, he stole from everyone to find his own voice”. 

An “assimilation” or “synthesis” of desperate ideas combined with ones own unique experiences come from a truth within each of us. We cannot help being influenced by what we see and hear. Their are many element from fields other than art which we recognize in our work. Their are many cross applications between science and art.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog. With over 6000 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 the need for our help, attention, care, and love. I look forward to sharing more, so please stay tuned.

Thanks to all,  John Anderson
