After creating a pile of collected images and words, the participants began going through their stash and choosing items to place on a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper. Before gluing anything, I asked them to move the images around, trade for other images and continue to experiment with placement. When ready to begin gluing the instructions given to just start. After an hour or so, I asked everyone to tape his/her image to the wall and for everyone in the group to use post it notes to write one word that describe each other’s work.
