fabrica: the news machine for COLORS magazine

designed and built for the launch of COLORS #86 – ‘the news machine’ churns your tweets through different media filters and into print, simulating the contemporary 24-hour news cycle. titled ‘making the news’, the new issue will be presented at the international journalism festival in perugia. designed and created by young talents at fabrica, the interactive installation is in continual motion, creating, transmitting and cannibalizing its own newsfeed across different media to stand as a mechanical allegory of the distribution of information today.
