Are news totally invading us in a way we can't even understand the meaning of it? Is the overabundance of unnecessary news confusing our thoughts every day?
These are the questions we asked ourselves at the beginning of this project. We choosed to show this problematic by using the public space as a medium of communication and experimental typography as the message.
Here's how we did it :
Every day we took the first flash news that would show up after 12 o'clock of a french news website. We would put this sentence on a specific layout for a poster of 195x145cm and then with a randomly chequered pattern (thanks to Tristan Bagot) we would choose to remove or leave the squares dividing the poster. Here's a sketch to make it easier to understand :
So after all the poster were cut into squares, we went and glued them on a public billboard.
We had a lot of people questioning about what we were doing.
Here's the video of how the posters would look square by square :
