Over several years, artist Tim Schwartz [timschwartz.org] has created a collection of physical art pieces that focus on the analysis and depiction of news stories.
The Command Centre piece contains a set of diverse needle gauges that reflect different statistical measurement as the according data traverses through time. Paris - Physical highlights the distribution of news stories about "paris hilton" versus "paris france" through a single physical needle gauge. Card Catalog is designed to hold all of the songs on the artist's iPod, about 7,390 songs. Each song is cataloged on a single card. The piece is just under fourteen feet when opened. Finally, Geohistoriography wall drawings capture how America views the world as seen through the lens of the American media, illustrating the number of articles written about a certain country for each year.
