A what? An assemblage is a three-dimensional artistic composition made of miscellaneous objects or found materials.

The French artist Jean Dubuffet first used the term assemblage to describe a method of turning found objects into three-dimensional structures.

The debate about what is a collage versus an assemblage also began at that time. Dubuffet referred to his butterfly works as assemblages, though art historians seem to prefer the term collage.
