"agent" by Jen Hofer



Front Page News involved a daily practice of making a cut-up poem using lines, spaces, fragments and clusters from the front page of the local newspaper from the city where I woke on that day. The project lasted for a year, from my birthday in 2011 until the day after my birthday in 2012.
