Every news channel asks it’s viewers to trust the content it broadcasts. However, with the rise of fake news it becomes hard to determine what is real and what is fiction. In order to challenge this phenomenon we created a dystopic and absurd scenario to the daily news we consume.
The scaled models are fragile objects built from paper. It can be demolished and re-built in order to recreate the perfect image. The hands are players which are choreographed with exaggerated gestures from daily news. Together they create a fake dystopic image which is constructed from reality.
In collaboration with Gali Blay and François Bonnot, the news channel we created combines performance and live streaming while using scaled models as tools and hands as players. A project presented at Palazzo Clerici in Milan for the Salone del mobile 2017 and at the Graduate Centre in London.
