Artist Cole Sternberg on his Ode to TMZ, Perez Hilton, and Celeb Tweets

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

We caught up with L.A.-based artist Cole Sternberg at the unveiling of his latest exhibition, "the content bleeds through." The room full of words sourced from, People, CNN,, and celebrity Twitter accounts took Sternberg (no relation to this reporter) seven months to complete in the back house at Normandie Keith's place in the hills.

Take a tour with us and the artist through his "vision for this apocalyptic moment when media and technology have pushed us so far that all the content blurs together."
