When an audience points the camera at a foreign country, a news photograph from that country will be projected on the LCD monitor on the back of the camera. Pointing the camera to the country of choice and using the lens zoom to adjust the distance, the audience can see the latest news photographs randomly chosen from the Web. An analog single lens reflex camera is used as an homage to the glory days of news photography. This work encourages the rethinking of the relationship between geographical coordinates and the news.
