A little knowledge trip through the past and present.

Collage isn’t just for the visual arts. Legendary novelist William S. Burroughs developed his signature non-linear writing style when he found inspiration in artist and writer Brion Gysin’s cut-up technique. When Burroughs wrote The Nova Trilogy, he sliced up words and phrases to create new sentences, establishing new connections between words and images.
