The Posters

Ongoing Matter features work that explores text from the Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election through design. The text in each composition comes directly from the Report—references and citations are an important part of emphasizing where, within the text, the information originates—but often also includes additional cited sources that provide broader, contemporary context. The work also references themes related to transparency and accountability in government; foreign interference and influence; collusion, treason, high crimes, misdemeanors; the role of an independent counsel/the Justice Department; social media, and misinformation/disinformation campaigns.
