Newstweek, 2011

Single-channel video with sound (3.20 mins)

Newstweek is a device which allows the manipulation of news read by other people via wireless hotspots. Built into a small and innocuous wall plug, the Newstweek device appears part of the local infrastructure, allowing writers to remotely edit news read on wireless devices without the awareness of their users.

The exhibition includes documentation exploring how this device was made, and why, as well as further explaining the functionality of the piece.
