On November 4th, I as well as millions of other citizens of the earth breathed a collective sigh of relief as the door closed on what has been one of the darkest periods of my countries history and also one of the darkest periods of american influence on the rest of the globe. In my memory and as a keen student of history rarely have such a small band of individuals wielded so recklessly the positions of power they found themselves in. I am now collecting material from friends across the globe reading the headlines of their domestic newspapers of the announcement of the victory of Barack Obama as the new president of the United States. This project is a reflection of what i feel was a global sense of renewal and good will that greeted the election of our new president. More to come. If any of you reading this have newspapers from that day and would like to submit a photo to be realized in steel for this project feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
