Artist’s Statement: The Rhyme of the Edited Mariner is a reduced-text version of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Using Microsoft Word’s Autosummarize feature, the text has been reduced to just 25% of its original, making it much more palatable for our fast-paced modern culture.
