Falling Times is a real-time news translation machine representing permanently appearing and

disappearing information about our times. Falling Times refers to the heavy InfoPollution we

live in. The most consumed information today is the news.

The news has been turning more and more into entertainment.

Falling Times reduces the news content to headlines and key words that are then translated

into a pictogram language considered to be universal and instantly understandable. Online

users have the opportunity to define collectively the meaning associated with each icon created.

Proving information does not transport meaning any more but rather creates a pattern

decorating our daily life with the feeling that we are connected to reality. In collaboration with Dirk Reinbold.

The exhibition is a part of What Happened to the Future? – a series of exhibitions of conemporary art at the Czech Center New York. Curated by Jaroslav Anděl.
