Artist Statement:

    CNNplusplus is a tactical media project that alters a CNN newscast through subtle, automated media juxtaposition and replacement. The newscaster remains positioned in the right corner, while the News Enhancement Program selectively replaces the other two regions of the screen. Headlines from independent news sources replace the scroll and also trigger a keyword Google image search. Viewers can customize the news by submitting their own headlines and keywords at CNNplusplus.com.
