Between the rapid consumption of digital information and the upsurge of AI’s in generating not only news but also false identities, a lot of opportunities for deception have arisen.
Up-dating visualizes a future news consumption interface that has taken current trends such as push notifications, clickbait headlines, incremental reporting, automatically generated article text, and limited reading time to an extreme. The news content itself describes a world in which scamming is pervasive and the protagonists are not exclusively human.
The project draws attention to how the way we consume information is not only changing our perception of reality but also introducing real new dangers.
