What is called truth 所谓真相
 What is called Truth 

Long before click-baiting and the internet, there existed fake and exaggerated news. In the 19th century, the term “yellow journalism” was coined to refer to wildly exaggerated and sensationalist news stories. These made-up stories were attention-grabbing but provided very few actual facts. In the 21st century, also dubbed the “Post-Truth” era, similar types of fake eye-grabbing news exist across the Internet.  I designed a website to inform people about the history of Yellow Journalism in comparison to the current Post-Truth era. Targeting a Chinese audience, I chose real titles of fake and exaggerated news chosen from the Chinese internet. Using dazzling fluorescent colors, I demonstrate how websites use flashy imagery over substance to attract the viewer’s attention. 

This work is an early rendition of my undergraduate final project, Amusing to Death. You can see the final version on my work page.




所谓真相
 
       我们生活在满是虚假新闻和不实新闻的年代里。在19世纪,报纸媒介中有一类新闻被称为“黄色新闻”,意指那些夸大甚至捏造事实以博取人眼球的新闻。而21世纪是一个后真相时代,同样的事情借助于网络依旧在发生着。我设计了一个网站向大家介绍“黄色新闻”和“后真相”,同时选取了中国网络上一些假新闻、冷血新闻的标题来说明我们正在面对的情况。特地选用了刺眼的荧光色来凸显假新闻博取眼球的主题。
       这组作品是我本科毕业设计《极乐》的早期方案,最终方案在我的个人作品页中可以找到。
