Redaction, in the literary sense, is a visual art of censorship. But when taken out of the context of visual art, Redaction is just censorship & information control. When used as art—as Austin Kleon deployed in his infamous "Blackout Poems," Redaction brings the "struggle of writing to the surface." This kind of visual poetry is a reminder that meaning cannot be separated from its perception. Whenever something is redacted, regardless of why, it causes the reader to "question everything" they see on the page or on the screen—and in these hurried times we believe that perhaps the quality of our art will be judged and remembered only in parallel to the quality of our questions. Digital Americana offers "Redact" not to hide a single word, but for the call to question, question everything we can. What's Really Cool: The iPad App version (coming soon) allows the reader to redact anything they want from the issue and create & share their own visual poetry. Read more at thedigitalamericana.com
