One of the compulsory coursework tasks for this project is the construction of an assemblage in a box. The work of Joseph Cornell is given as a reference. Check out the official website here
Cornell was a prolific collector of found objects and extensively cataloged material for reference and later use.
The assemblage that you will make as part of the current coursework will require that to some degree you engage in the process of collecting material that is related either conceptually or visually.
