Collage is pieces of other things. Their edges don’t meet.
Really interesting point brought up in the Shields reading. From what I understand by linking point 339 with point 333 on mosaic, it means the broken dishes are connected to each other yet their “edges”, which I believe to be the patterns, will not meet.
Meaning that there should be a clear break down on the broken dishes. The collage is made up of the broken dishes but the pattern will be different from its original form. That’s what it meant by the edges don’t meet (means it can’t be formed as the original form where the edges that is broken fit together).
Here’s what I did with a busker video:
Although each frames consist of what we would consider a full human body (the head, the body and the leg), yet the “edges” does not meet together.
Or, in a more literal way, the borders of the collage doesn’t meet. Which is what all our videos will have. Just like the busker video above, our videos will have the spacing/black border to distinguish the pieces apart.
It might be too confusing if the frames are all stack together.
