ARTICULATION OF WORK:
These screenshots of altered New York Times pages expel the dialectical relationship between observer and text-parading-in-self-anointed-significance. The content of the"important news" freely available on these pages normally parades under assumed authority, relevance, and a particular set of truths. This is a hijacking of that parade.

After leaving home outside Chicago at the age of 13, Hugh Margemont-Robinson delivered papers and pizzas to put himself through university studying literature. Realizing that institutional intellectual growth stinks with hindrance and false authoritative myopia, he left for Algeria to study the history of worker's movements and the evolution of the post-neo-avant-garde-isms through the utopian struggles of political and social theory expressed in subversive and shiny literature. After living abroad broke as a joke in Europe and Central Asia for 5 years, he now transports shadows for American dollars alone through a tubular structure denying all hierarchical codification and capitulation to consumerist ideals outside of Chicago.
