About the Work
How You See It layers a single story as told by three different stations (CBS, NBC and ABC). This layering has been created with the idea of "fugue" in mind. That is, a procedure of imitative counterpoint. What How You See It hopes to illuminate is how news broadcasts, far from daring reporting or varied approaches has regressed to pantomiming each other, creating a cacophony of sound and images that are no different from one another. Our news media landscape normally described as three giants is really one in disguise.
