Yesterday I spent the afternoon reviewing copyedits of my next book, Heliopause, which will be out next spring. The book includes this poem, “Elegy for Neil Armstrong,” but it will appear there as text only, so I thought today, on the 45th anniversary of the moon landing, I’d post the whole set of images as I first made them, by erasing NASA’s transcript of the mission (found in Things Working, a Penguin English Project book). Happy anniversary, spacemen.

This is the last piece of my triptych elegy for Neil Armstrong, made by erasing the transcript of the Apollo moon landing as reproduced in an English children’s textbook called Things Working. (Here are parts 1 and 2.)

When Neil Armstrong died I made an erasure of the transcript of the Apollo moon landing as reproduced in an English children’s textbook called Things Working. (You might remember the first part from here.) The second part is now up over at BOMBlog. Maybe I’ll put part three up here in a couple of days? Or maybe I should hide it in the Library of Congress.
