news images generate world as repetitive pattern

In the repetition of stereotyped images from major news sources developes an hourly changing pattern, which might tell more about the view and access to readability of visual reproduction we have about the surrounding world than any single picture would.
In this sense the missing – the non visible visualisations define the gap, whilst the limitations allow to point out a general pattern structure of perception. In its beautiful simplification, and through the reduction to major western sources it is very telling in its own terms.


The top 100 words are chosen, along with 100 corresponding images, culled from the source news stories. At the end of each day, month, and year, 10×10 looks back through its archives to conclude the top 100 words for the given time period. In this way, a constantly evolving record of our world is formed, based on prominent world events, without any human input.
