Art: Austin Kleon - Newspaper Blackout Poems

Austin Kleon was included in the presentation of one of the architects (Page Sutherland Page) for the Austin Public Library Project. The presentation said: "In the end, what we need to do is to make a kind of poetry out of the latent potential of the project and site." What Austin Kleon does is reveal the "latent poetry tucked away in the body text of headline news."
