The title pretty much says it all. See the utterly fantastical portfolio of work created by Jim Kazanjian, whose efforts immediately prompted me to recommend this as a Visual Assignment.  Kudos to my good friend Doug Peterson for blogging about this after reading Michael Zhang's post on PetaPixel. I have tried to incorporate Kazanjian's philosophy as shared by Zhang's description in the following guide: 


Using an image editor like Photoshop or GIMP, edit together found images of buildings and structures to create what Kazanjian calls a "hyper-collage."  Look for and select interesting elements of buildings that can be fitted together into a coherent scene. Try to make your image unique to you, creating some kind of dream-like imaginary building. Be sure to think about the "setting" that your building is located in. Your end product should be a back-and-white image.


With exemplars like Kazanjian's to work towards, I vote for 4 stars on this if you do a really really good job. I can't wait to get started on this one!
