Daily Omen is part of a series of newsroom images where text, branding details and objects have been removed to create eerily vacant spaces that emphasize the dramatically exaggerated nature of broadcast architecture. The work points out the absurdity of what has become a standard approach to delivering news, namely, something that is sold as fact, but is in reality a mixture of anecdotal opinion, dramatic interpretation and outright propaganda. The design of this space reflects a global placelessness, but also reads like a digital altar, or a dated concept of what the future could be. It is the deck of a spacecraft, or a windowless stage, upon which our fears and desires take root and the world is flattened into a consumable spectacle where even the weather report becomes entertainment.
