Falling Times (Sao Paulo, 2008)
Data-driven installation: projector, software (Flash)
Avenida Paulista, Sao Paulo
"Falling Times" deals with the information society and a new form of consumer - the lnfoconsumer. News have gradually become more and more entertaining - infotainment. In the installation, the content that is most common in the news is reduced to headings and keywords. These reduced messages are automatically translated into a dynamic pictogram language that is universal and immediately understandable. Bielicky and Richter want to contribute to an informational ecology with their minimalistic data visualization and generally relativize the perception of news. lnformation should no longer convey any meaning, but rather form a pattern that once again fulfills the viewer 's feeling of connection with reality.
