“On Journalism #2 Typewriter” is a typewriter installation that honours journalists who been killed worldwide between 1992 and present day, by writing generatively constructed stories about about them based on their published work and the existing data of their lives (via the Committee to Protect Journalists).
The installation is the project of Julian Koschwitz, an interactive art directer who specialises in projects involving interactive installations, web applications and digital editorial design — and a professor of interactive design at Italy’s Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.
The individual stories are connected through common fields of coverage and area of deployment. In addition to stories, the typewriter creates type-based images, flags that are distorted to varying degrees based on the number of journalists killed in a given country.
The installation is accompanied by a set of prints that highlight specific aspects like the state of freedom of the press in certain countries, the fields of coverage and the ties between journalists.
A very particular shade of blue hair has evolved independently on eight separate occasions and in at least three different ways in tarantulas, a new study finds. And scientists are having a hell of a time figuring out why.
In two years, SpaceX will begin ferrying astronauts into orbit. But before it can do so, the commercial spaceflight company must prove to NASA that the ride will be safe. A big part of that guarantee comes from the fire-breathing propulsion system pictured above.
The interior of a Cambridge chapel comes alive with light in an eye-popping immersive project art installation. It's the creation of artist Miguel Chevalier and the installation was commissioned by the University of Cambridge for a fundraiser last month -- the first time the university has invited an artist to do such a project in its famed King's College Chapel.
