Every day we are forced to integrate the worlds news into our personal lives; we all have to decide what parts of the flood of news resonate with us and what we need to turn away from, out of necessity or sensitivity. Obliterations--a collection of erasure poems that use The New York Times as their source texts--springs from that seemingly immediate process of personalizing news information. By cutting, synthesizing and arranging existing news items into new poems, the erasure process creates a link between the authors poetic sensibilities and the supposedly more "objective" view of the newsmakers. Each author used the same articles but wrote separate erasures without seeing the others versions, highlighting the wonderful similarities and differences that arise when two works--or any two people with individual tastes and lenses--share the same stories.
