A three-dimensional Abstract Creative Design, consisting of a
combination of "found," disparate objects and plant
"Found" objects are non-art objects, not made or
manufactured for decorative purposes. They may be
painted, but should remain recognizable and not contrived.
"Disparate objects" refer to unlike objects that
have never had a prior use together.
Though objects are considered non-art and previously unrelated,
the designer creatively relates them through their compatible
elemental qualities of line, form, color and texture. In
order to be disparate from one another and satisfy the term
"assemblage," objects must dominate and there
should be three or more different objects.
Plant material enhances.
