[Montage Theory]  ‘Alexander Nevsky’ + ‘Battleship Potemkin’  The concept of montage is defined by the action of fragmenting reality and then reassembling it under the principle of a conflictive order. By juxtaposing two contrasting, disjointed elements a new meaning is created, something that transcends them both and the reality from which they arise.

Anarchy Alchemy  "We fed a library of stock photography into a piece of software we built that combined them into new compositions of three following a set of predefined rules. Randomly juxtaposing the source material and combining imagery from a wide variety of different topics and contexts resulted in a series of images that carried entirely new and unexpected meanings."

'The emotional meaning of the film—the narrative itself, really—is communicated through the juxtaposition of these images. During a stirring sequence, Eisenstein metaphorizes the Russian rebellion to the waking of a sleeping lion by juxtaposing images of three different lion statues: the first lion is sleeping, the second rousing itself, and the third has risen to full height."

This is a fun exercise using two wonderful and famous poems: "Ozymandius" & "The New Colossus." In this activity students will read each poem, derive their meaning, compare the two poems, and postulate what conclusions about civilizations, both ancient and modern, can be arrived at when juxtaposing these two poems.

Allowing juxtaposing patterns and colors to create the rhythm. 3 wooden beads all varying in size are strung on an adjustable leather cord and hand painted in unique colors and patterns.  Each piece is hand painted meaning there are no 2 pieces that are identical. Though these are finished with a gloss coating, they are not waterproof. It is recommended that these are kept away from moisture to preserve the quality and extend the life of the piece.

"TygerTyger" watercolors and ink on canvas 24x30 inches. "Tyger tyger burning bright In the forests of the night; What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?" - The Tyger by William Blake  I've been wanting to complete a piece like this for awhile but couldn't think of how to make it come together. "The Tyger" is one of my favorite poems and I wanted to capture the spirit of it's meaning; juxtaposing the beauty and ferocity of nature.  #tygertyger #tiger #bigcats…

Cat Pope's artist statement: "Living in a society of secret-keepers and scandal-seekers, my work explores the human needs of love, affirmation and self-worth. Imagery from pop culture and media advertisements expose a dependency on the desirable and the artificial. By juxtaposing these appropriations alongside my own constructed visual language, my work challenges and probes the senses of reality and morality in the viewer. It is important that my work presents an ambiguous balance in…

The Art Out There: Katherine Ace. There is a narrative aspect to Katherine Ace's paintings that does not stem solely from the fact that many of them are based on the tales of the brothers Grimm. It's rather that they function in very much the same manner as the stories.  By juxtaposing unexpected and often improbable elements they create associative possibilities that encourage interpretation and meaning. http://www.katherineace.com/

CDC Tips From Former Smokers (2 of 3) This print ad is effective in reaching mothers and potential mothers by selling people on the emotional and physical consequences of smoking. They used a clever tag line that includes a juxtaposing message that prompts the readers to think twice about its meaning, just like they should be thinking twice about smoking.

Working in the medium of old, discarded book covers, my work explores new social, cultural, and political narratives through themes of relatedness and identity. By juxtaposing the new and the old -- new art from old materials -- voices across time speak to one another, thereby opening avenues toward meaning. I like the visitor to enter a disparate world of language, typography, and illustration styles that captures the eye and demands it to move back and forth among layers looking for…

Visual artist and designer Chad Wys has recently published his new project  named 'Altar' on Behance. Wys digitally modernizes classic works of art by  juxtaposing opposite colors and styles. His practice is one of both  revelation and obfuscation but leaves the meaning to be made by the viewer.

Urchin by Loui Jover. Jover creates his pen and ink drawings on vintage book paper because he believes that it adds to the fragility of the works, saying "the wind may blow them away at any moment." Also, juxtaposing the stark black lines with the intricate printed words offers "a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of 'meaning' and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way."

Katrien de Blauwer developed her collage practice while studying fashion but later it became her full focus. She creates fairly simple compositions from found photography and magazine cuttings, usually juxtaposing just one or two images to create an ambiguous narrative.
