A work, such as a literary piece, composed of both borrowed and original material.      2. An assemblage of diverse elements

Through appropriation and reinterpretation the process of collage allows for a base image or set of images to be reimagined and restructured into new and often unpredictable phases. Through the dissection and reintegration of common materials along with the infinitely diverse sources of digital and printed media it is a medium which offers incredibly varied and always surprising results. Running with Scissors brings together artists currently working in this medium and showcases their dynamic and diverse styles.
