The making of TABLOID! became a process of looking at my response to newspaper articles about technological changes in our communication systems, and the political changes affecting its access and control. I collected headlines and articles, mostly from the New York Times, from January-July 2018. Carving the photos and articles in linoleum, and hand setting lead type contrasts the continually updated digital information on our screens. Printing the stories in tabloid format and tone both satirizes and reveals our current news environment.
