This image is created from hundreds of text boxes cut from Brighton's Friday-Ad newspaper.
Glitches and patterns lie hidden within the text. Alex cuts away primary information to expose obscure evidence. Recurring images, storylines and features, consumed daily, manipulate and seduce. Her dogged pursuit of clarity finds her embedded in detail and myth. It seems possible that the closer she looks the less she can see.
