Sociecity sits down for a chat with artist Pantea Karimi in Portola Valley, California to ask about her obsession with newspapers, and find out how this fits into her latest piece titled “Fill in the Blanks.”

The piece, part of a group show at Kriewall-Haehl Gallery, asks gallery visitors to be involved and give their input on social and political issues by filing in the Mad-Libs style pieces. The interactive artworks (Karimi plans to create 100 of them in total) were put together using a year’s worth of Wall Street Journal newspapers.
