Assemblage 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. Although, assemblage works such as Firebird typically do not involve audience participation in the sense that viewers are encouraged to engage with the making of the work in a collaborative fashion.
