"As early as 1927, the artist László Moholy-Nagy predicted the illiterates of the future would be those without knowledge of photography. The project Untitled (Newspaper) addresses this issue by emphasizing the complicated relationship between creator, recipient and content. Consisting of archival materials recycled from online news sources over the past two years, the piece orchestrates a new context in which the various photographs can be interpreted separately and together in an unresolved narrative."
