Time Capsules series

Time Capsules by Amos Poe is a series of complete newspapers that the artist has wrapped in colored duct tape leaving only printed photographic images on both sides exposed. The series made in 2006-2007, but never before exhibited, challenges the viewer to recall moments of historical significance, draws attention to previously unnoticed daily occurrences, and leads to new correlations and interpretations of events, without the guidance or imposition of a headline or text thus questioning the power of an image and its temporality.
