About this product
- DescriptionEvery day we are forced to integrate the world s news into our personal lives; we all have to decide what parts of the flood of news resonate with us and what we need to turn away from, out of necessity or sensitivity. <i>Obliterations</i> a collection of erasure poems that use <i>The New York Times</i> as their source texts springs from that seemingly immediate process of personalizing news information. By cutting, synthesizing and arranging existing news items into new poems, the erasure process creates a link between the authors poetic sensibilities and the supposedly more objective view of the newsmakers. Each author used the same articles but wrote separate erasures without seeing the other s versions, highlighting the wonderful similarities and differences that arise when two works or any two people with individual tastes and lenses share the same stories.
