Descrizione: "Press Infraction No.7" addresses the complexity of today's information overload. The splitting, triangular forms are visualizations of how quickly an idea fades into insignificance or, alternatively, grows in strength. The gradual change in tonality is a reference to the manufacture of newspapers and the endless stream of distribution but also refers to the blurring outline between what we consider to be actual truth or mere deception. Indeed, the recent concerns over 'fake news', public shaming and market saturation prompted me to address the competition theme by reducing the chaotic printed word into simple, geometric forms.
