FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Gov Doc Art

Check out my cousin Gabriel Troy’s artwork using government documents.

He says about this sculpture, “Federal Paperwork Burden”: “I wanted to make these Government documents accessible and inaccessible at the same time. The books are fixed by tension without a back or shelf.”

He also took pages from government documents and painted over them: “These pages were cut from documents pertaining to business, agriculture, industry, and domestic issues. I have added structures to house the information.”
