Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) had two apparently contradictory passions: typography and collage. Typography led him to the field of graphic design, in which order and legibility are perforce the norm, whereas with collage, everything seems to arise spontaneously, unexpectedly, by chance -to the extent that its dominant perceptual mechanism (one that is indeed sometimes abused) is surprise.
