Skye Gilkerson
Wounded in West Texas
unfolded page of the New York Times with punctuation removed, ink

Each drawing is made of an unfolded page from the New York Times, with every punctuation mark removed. The remaining paper is saturated with its own medium: black ink, leaving a cosmos of blank spaces. Each piece represents one month of the past year; the titles are drawn from the unseen text of each page, zooming into specific content from that day, ranging from individual tragedies and victories to world wide events.
