The Good News

May 2007 – May 2008

The Good News deals with both the humorous and callous way in which language is used in the media. Over the period of a year, I collected The New York Post for everyday in which I was in New York City. Painting out everything on the cover except the main headline, the piece functions as a strange cultural diary of fragmented statements in which serious news stories are alluded to through puns, and celebrity gossip is sensationalized. Hung next to one another arbitrarily, the context of the individual covers is constantly in flux creating an ever-evolving poem.

Each cover is 11” x 14”
