How can you not think of a blackout image? This is a sister work to ‘Through My Own Eyes’. Years ago I frequently visited our local Quakers church. I would sit and think of my life as a photographer. Making images - and here I was in an institution where there were no images. A simple bowl of flowers decorated the church. I had a responsibility to ponder the consequences. News is the Pulpit of our times.

The project consists of a web animation and soundtrack with automated web sessions pulling live news sites and manipulating the site to re-shape the content. Every hour a sound announces each bulletin. At the beginning of each day the days news is downloaded and integrated into local webpages.
