Works on Paper > Textual Pointillism

This line drawing of The Annunciation by Botticelli is made up exclusively of handwritten text taken from the so-called "Torture Memo" of 2002 in which President Bush was advised that acts widely regarded as torture might be legally permissible under expanded Presidential powers during the "War on Terror."

I was struck by the number of times the phrase "in good faith" appeared amongst the convoluted legalese that made up the memo.
