Anything is always part of the definition of something else, nothing is so “unique” that it has no relationship to anything else.
Invention is always the result of combined thought; even if that thought dictates the eventual absence of one or more of the elements of the inventive formula.
Collage came to exist as a viable media as much by the subtraction of the drawn or painted image, as by it’s replacement with printed wallpaper or newsprint and steel sewing pins. Picasso’s visual equations became a variant
of Braque’s and vice-versa. This mutual influence resulted in a visual language which in turn was paragraphical in the coming definition of Modernism.
