Automated Typewriter Creates Never-Ending Story Honouring Killed Journalists

Automated Typewriter Creates Never-Ending Story Honouring Killed Journalists

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.
