Assemblage, such as still life with quirk, traditionally centers on the transformation of conventional objects, and materials into sculptural forms via assimilating processes such as stacking, welding, gluing, suspending, etc. Such works have the ability to trigger poetic associations to the viewer based on their prior experience with the materials and objects they can observe within the assemblage. Overlooked is the notion that assemblages can exist between the realm of functionality, and their more historic/conceptual position of aesthetic triggers for the viewer.
