What is the name of this mosaic technique?

And random image of a girl I found on the web:

It combines many almost random but thematically or stylistically similar images, newspaper clippings, letters and snippets of text, etc to create one rough, chaotic, energetic image.

Answer

I’d call it a bricolage.

In the visual arts bricolage is the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available, or a work created by such a process. The term is borrowed from the French word bricolage.
