The Newspaper Blackout Assignment suggests that you should “grab a marker and today’s morning edition and start blacking out sections to create a new story. It could be a poem, a picture, or a novella, all drawn from the words of the latest news”. I decided to shake this up with a bit of colour. The original article appeared in today’s Toronto Star “Edward Burtynsky’s bigger picture” (link will probably only work for a few days). The result wasn’t exactly as I had envisioned. A shorter article would have worked better as you will need to click on the image to actually read the words.
