News Factory (2014) New media installation, 2 projections onto suspended object, 3:26 and 0:43 min
News Factory addresses concerns regarding the news industry, particularly the manipulation of the masses through the distortion of information. It investigates underlying issues such as the implications of ‘commercial logic’, the infestation of PR content, the irony of PR today and the class separation between the manipulator and the masses. The work also recognises a ‘fish bowl effect’ where a conservative outlook is being circulated by the media as a consequence to the above issues.
This work received two awards in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize New Media Art Category 2014
