The new news
An interactive machine in which the user unsuspectingly delves into the archives of tweets sent to journalists. Every day, many Dutch journalists are threatened and aggressively treated online, leading to a current threat to the freedom of the press.
In the new news, it is the user’s turn. By entering a word, the new news can produce a daily report of tweets containing your word addressed to Dutch Journalists. In one fell swoop, what they experience on a daily basis is tangible and visible. Because of the algorithm, it can happen that your typed word is not approved, and you have to search for your own limits of what you want to know. The technology in the machine is visible as an ode to what we all secretly long for again, a time with less technology.
