Enter Tele-scape + Word_Cloud_2.0


What you see is a true lie. Footage from three landscapes are all mincided by the screenscape into one narrative.

A loop from my room back to my room and to my laptop screen. Above is the set up and below images of the views. Through 9 screens we are looking back at my laptop screen from the Uk through Cyprus and back again. On my laptop screen we are inside the Philip Glass Koyaanisqatsi. (They become 11 screens if we add the unrelated content of the other two large monitors behind my laptop screen).

 Word Cloud 2.0! Within the big cloud of Phantasmagoria the clouds of journalism v. narrative, room, landscape, and footage are being minced:


Also a very interesting look into the Narrative Index – Facts alone are completely irrelevant the delivery of a strong narrative matters more:

And to finish off a funny article on the meaning of “Mincing” from a journalistic perspective especially Mincing as in to “tell by degrees, instead of directly and frankly; to clip, as words or expressions; to utter half and keep back half.”:

    Nice cloud 2.0!

    rather than leave your diamonds out in the suburbs, why don’t you try to bring them INTO some of the other clouds? distribute them throughout – if you need, just put a little diamond icon next to them to keep track.

    nice one. Can’t watch the trump hillary video – my trump allergy still high! might try later ;)

    Thanks! Sure thing will start mincing the diamonds into the other clouds. Haha yeap we all need to work out some trump antihistamine for the next few years to cope indeed! I can explain the Narrative index tomorrow briefly just uses the campaign as a recent example.
