The COLORS News Machine at Festival of Dangerous Ideas — Sydney, Australia — 2-4 NOV, 2013
Sydney Opera House, Concert Hall
Now in its 5th year, the Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) has become a ‘must-see’ annual event for many, and a ‘must-do’ for some of the most controversial and confronting speakers in the world today. Check out the NEWS MACHINE – designed and built for the launch of COLORS 86, which churns your tweets through different media filters simulating the contemporary 24-hour news cycle. In a technological game of Chinese whispers, your Tweet is read aloud through a megaphone, captured by a tape recorder, converted into text and broadcast onto television and so on, before it’s finally printed out as a headline.
