Infinite Scroll

I've been hard at work on my final master's project. Basically I’m creating a physical manifestation of modern society’s insatiable appetite for information regardless of the quality, truthfulness, or value of that information. Sounds heavy. Essentially I'm building an LED device using an Arduino that dynamically generates fake news headlines. People have described watching the "news" scroll by on the device as "mesmerizing". I guess that's kind of the point.

A prototype of the device in its translucent perspex case. A protective white sheet is still covering the front panel of the case. Still too fragile to bring into the photo studio!
