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┬áthe 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.
