Artist Alphabetizes Newspaper

Artist Kim Rugg specializes in re-arranging shapes and text on paper. We’ve previously posted about her discovery that Royal Mail stamp reading machines would take any shaped stamp, so as long as they had the correct colors. Rugg responded by making her own usable stamps.

More recently, she rearranged the letters in the lines of text on the front page of a newspaper so that they were in alphabetical order. The linked video is an exploration of that project, as well as Rugg’s other experiments.
