Canadian visual artist Kim Rugg has patience and glue, and her art requires a lot of both.

The front pages of the newspapers shown above, for example, were taken apart with an X-ACTO knife, letter by letter, then rearranged in alphabetical order.

So what is Kim Rugg at? She’s taking the piss out of the print media, what it says and how it says it.

Or, as the gallery owner puts it:

Through her re-appropriation of medium and meaning, she effectively highlights the innately slanted nature of the distribution of information as well as its messengers.

Yes.
