I made this piece for my Design class as well. The assignment was to make nine abstract squares and mount them together as one big square. We were to take a piece of paper and cut a 1 x 1inch square out of it. We were then supposed to find some pictures from magazines and use that square as our "view finder" to pick out abstract designs. My designs came from a picture of the edge of a cucumber, and the cheek and whiskers of a cat. I used wood, wood veneer, and masking tape for my medium. I really liked the depth that the different layers of wood gave the piece.
