De Telegraaf

editorial design / interactivity / photography

A limited access to informations, keeping the online user interactions involved.

Everyone is constantly looking for informations while everything is evolving at an incredible speed. Before, photographies in newspapers were used to show the reality, truth, facts, events. The were comforting and giving credit to the textual part.

« (...) the newspaper is of the opinion that it is using the photographs as an illustration of its articles in order to be able to program its readers, that accordingly photographers are functionaries of the newspaper apparatus. »

We are supposed to be able to get the same amount of informations with both material one and digital newspapers.

They are a lonely experience, printed newspaper's information you've read can only be shared if you offer the possibility to someone else to read the content of the newspaper. Nowadays, most people are looking for informations online, because you have easy access to various contents from anywhere you want.

Buying a paper copy of newspaper, considering they are sold only one day, also makes the project ephemeral. Considering the recent events, we have to stay inside, avoid each other and safe distancing. Sharing is becoming even more virtual than it used to be. What if digital content would be a social meeting experience?

The project exists through two different outcomes: a material and a digital newspaper. The printed newspaper follows De Telegraaf layout, but it doesn't deliver any information to the reader. All the printed content is digitally generated. The text is unreadable because a program shuffled the letters, and the images are stuck in a blurred « loading stage » as we can see on Instagram.

An Arduino chip is used in order to offer the digital version of De Telegraaf. The fake web-page would change to gradually load articles so people could look into the material newspaper displayed and try to get informations «online». It is the opposite of looking for informations online.

Finding the truth would only be possible in the area defined by the Arduino chip. If the connexion is lost, you would just have access to a permanent printed newspaper with only incomprehensible informations.
