Description

breakingNews visualizes news media's fascination with aggression by searching for synonyms of the word in hourly news feeds from Yahoo News and BBC News. All instances of "aggression" are depicted as animated capsules which bump and crash against each other.

A piece about media focus and obsession with world aggression. The software compares hourly network-based World News feeds from Yahoo.com and bbc.co.uk against a database of synonyms of the word "aggression," then outputs the matches as angry, fighting capsules. More matches return more, and angrier, capsules. Built in Processing.
