I Wanted to See All of the News From Today
Online project.
2007
Martin John Callanan

In this project Callanan presents us with miniatures of the front cover of more than 600 global publications on one webpage. The navigator is induced to plunge into this impossible collection, in this visual mass which tells us a great deal about the surface of the news, and very little - if anything - beyond that.
In one way it suggests that this is perhaps the same pointless effort made by the publication itself, by each newspaper and each of its readers. The trapping, the realization today, of what happened yesterday.
