Automatic Typewriter writes Stories about killed Journalists

Vimeo Direktwar, via Gizmodo

Tolle Arbeit von Julian Koschwitz, dessen automatisierte Schreibmaschine unendliche Geschichten auf Endlospapier über alle seit 1992 getöteten Journalisten schreibt und anhand von Datensätzen Infografiken und Flaggen einbaut.

The typewriter installation «On Journalism #2 Typewriter» writes generatively constructed stories about all journalist who have been killed worldwide between 1992 and today based on the existing data of their lives as well as their published work. The individual stories are connected through common fields of coverage, places, professions and many other aspects. Besides the text the typewriter creates also images e.g. flags which are heavier distorted the more journalists got killed in that particular country.

The story is written endlessly on one endless piece of paper.

Individual stories are being composed generatively. Always based on the data-set and combined with web searches. The flags are being distorted in relation to the amount of journalists who got killed in this country.

The software creates information graphics about the statistics in the data-set (e.g. how many have been killed in which country, which professions etc.) to connect them to the individual stories of the journalists. Screenshot and the typewriters execution.
