PROPOSAL

Apply the tools of data-management to the global news media.

WHY

The simple procedures of these films reveal un-simple hidden detail by compiling, concording or compositing global ‘news’ media; a kind of ‘uncreative’¹ art of databasing.

¹  That’s not to say uninteresting! More like a deliberate attempt to make only one choice (take every globe used in a TV news credit sequence) and to then re-present what you find.
