Microfiche Text Project


January 2017

By deconstructing found text from popular news periodicals I tried to understand how media, politics, and language has changed. I ripped advertisements and article titles from TIMES and NEWSWEEK from the month of January leading up to presidential inaugurations dating back to Eisenhower. By listing these familiar phrases out of context I’m looked for new combinations and messages.

Using these new messages as visual pieces, the grid behind them began as a quick representational sketch of the microfiche object that I first found the titles on. #microficheproject
