    Cubomania is a surrealist method of making collages in which a picture or image is cut into squares and the squares are then reassembled without regard for the image, automatically "or at random," or a collage made using this method, a "rearrangement... suffic[ing] to create an entirely new work. It has been described as a "statistical method".Robert Hirsch has seemed to imply that this process can be done with digital photography. Although seemingly a contradiction in terms, at least one cubomania has been made with triangular shapes. Cubomania is done by cutting up an image into squares or rectangles (normally the same size) and reassembling randomly, the outcome is a new image with little resemblance to the starting image. Penelope Rosemont and Joseph Jablonski have suggested that cubomania, with other surrealist methods, can "subvert the enslaving 'message' of advertising and to free images from repressive contexts."
