The page as art
The New York Times has a cool feature
(including video) about Serkan Ozkaya, an artist who draws newspaper pages. Here's what he says about his work:
A newspaper is history, one-a-day history. It’s our memory of what happened. So to make a drawing of it, to make a simulation of it, is what art always does: to mimic life, to mimic what is real.
Ozkaya's work will be on the Arts front in the NYT this weekend in a "picture within picture within picture" view.
