rules for collage

I make collage because it gives me a chance to create something that is purely aesthetic, with no need for justification. Any other work i do is based on concise communication, with a justification for every mark made. The single underlying concept for the collage I make is that it is always constructed from the scrap material left behind from previous projects.

With this concept in mind, I decided to make a piece of collage work, making pieces of aesthetic art out of the 'off-cuts' of abbreviated words. e.g. the 'o' that is cut out of 'not', making 'do not' into 'don't' etc.

I've started making the 'o' piece already, but it's not finished yet.
