The Material Whirl: 01.18.12 — BLACKOUT!

18 Jan

DONATED To the 2012 Twitter Art Exhibit in Moss Norway

6″ x 4″, on recycled cereal box cardboard

On January 18, 2012, websites from large to small blacked out their sites in solidarity for the fight against the SOPA legislation which was being considered in Congress.  I was unable to figure out how to black out a Posterous blog, where my collection was at the time, so I created a black collage instead.

This collage was submitted to the second Twitter art exhibit in Moss, Norway, where the sale of the submitted works raised money for the Women’s Crisis Center there.  For more information on the exhibit, see the original post by David Sandum (and the many comments) here:, and also search Twitter for the hashtag #twitterartexhibit.

If you are interested in seeing the collage that I submitted to the first #twitterartexhibit, you can find it here:
