Fragmentation: Shifts in publishing
As we engage more with technology our perception of content and current affairs is changing. The information we encounter often blends into a variety of types of content, making current affairs an object of commodification. Access to information through social media channels is increasingly posing different problems in relation to stimulus and simplification.
The consumption of news has changed with the influence of social media, becoming “incidental” rather than a conscious search. Today, hierarchies have become blurred and social media mixes different contents within one big scroll: the personal, the “news-worthy’, the relevant and the entertaining. Current affairs become ephemera.

My practice focuses on mediations with a special interest in editorial design. Recently my projects have been directed towards the exploration of current shifts in publishing and the influence of technology and social platforms on this subject.
