Breaking News

The New York Times, deconstructed and abstracted.

A daily newspaper publication, the New York Times is a regular and constant among the multitude of deciduous current events. This project took aspects of the New York Times and combined them in a way that is not visually semantic. A newspaper’s purpose is supposed to clearly convey information to the readers, yet so often media distorts that channel to be highly incoherent. This deconstruction of the New York Times is a personal interpretation of how news and events are relayed to people in modern society — that despite the structure of the medium, is frequently entirely undecipherable and misunderstood.

Breaking News was honored to be shown in CollectifBlanc’s exhibtion: Édition Journal, June 5 - 7, 2015
