News from Heaven is taken from the title of an 1641 weather report. Brought into a contemporary context, the work incorporates typography and graphic images from recent news publications referring to climate change, COVID-19, political unrest, and economic fallout. THe work considers how the mass of text and images generated by news cycles confronts us in everyday circumstances and frames our understanding of current events.
