Anthony Rundblade: Catastrophe Parade by A.D. Burton

The poem appears to be a series of largely American news headlines appropriated from print and broadcast media, creating a disjointed and unstable tableau. The exhibition reflects two simultaneous truths—the manipulative effect a continually produced narrative has on its viewership, as well as, the necessity of an informed populace, capable of understanding the nuanced complexity of media reports."
