My poetics of redaction

The redacted sections in the Muller report – pictured in your task – is fascinating. What of course becomes visible are the redactions themselves. My eyes are drawn to the blacked-out sections and it makes me more curious to know what is censored. My approach to the redaction was to create a similar effect: how could the dark bits – or in my case pink– draw more attention to that area.

I decided to post both my ‘censored’ version as well as the original collage. I did not feel that anything in the collage was unfit for public view (you might disagree!) and perhaps in the process of redacting I have indeed highlighted my own feelings and relationship with the images presented in the collage.

See here for next task.
