We return to the adventures of manufactured books, with a new collection, entitled Cooking News.
It is made of decorative paper for walls, newspapers, cotton or hemp yarn and non-toxic glue, bringing together a series of few models, always indicative.
The mixture of leaves is random, therefore, the news does not respect an order and less an argumentative sense, proposing a different look at the information process: we are news creators or simple passive consumers, the certainty of manipulation, how moral panic is caused and a lot of questions to think about.
“Mass media equalls mass propaganda equals mass represion.”
“Crises spread from the economic through the political to cultural sphere.”
MARTIN BELL 2003
“In times of crisis, of war and terrorism, the rolling-news channels have special responsibilities as the primary source of news for millions of people. They are defined by F-words, they aim to be first and fastest.
Their nature, too often, is to be feverish, frenzied, frantic, frail and fallible.”
STAN COHEN 1972
“The mass media, in fact, devote a great deal of space to deviance: sensational crimes, scandals, bizarre happenings and strange goings on. The more dramatic confrontations between deviance and control in manhunts, trials and punishments are recurring objects of attention.”
