The Spectacular Times
Ward Goes has investigated the way media presentation shapes news content, and how this influences our perception of the news. He believes the truth is the sum of all our individual perceptions, not something cast in concrete. However, the media have a tendency to present the information in a black-and-white manner: pro or con, good or bad. Add to this the growing trend in which content is overruled, and deformed, by the presentation. This project combines and integrates different levels, opinions and perceptions of information through a layering of news elements, to create a new news image.
