"The News" 01 is a project created for CalArts Expo 2018. It is a collaboration project between Ray Liu and me. The live-streamed CBSN news is fed into the program and the program is recreating the news feed with 50 preset pictures in real-time. The size of the pictures used to recreate the news feed are controlled by live-stream NBS news station's audio. There is also a generative audio engine creating the ambient music in the background.
The pictures used to recreate the new feeds are selected to be vivid and cute.
"The News" is an ongoing series of projects about traditional broadcasting media forms and the new internet era media forms.
