Presented during Miami Art Base 2011 in the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) in the context of the exhibition “Frames and Documents: Conceptualist Practices”, “Digestible News” is an interactive action in which visitors experimented with the idea of creating, eating, digesting news…literally.
Thanks to wafer paper, pencils and digital print with eadible ink, participants could draw their own section of the newspaper Kreëmart News; politics, local news, letters to the editor, horoscope, arts and culture, etc. or simply send a picture to illustrate one of this sections and print it.
The action was meant to offer the public an opportunity to be part of a “newsroom” where, sitting at different tables, they could create their own page that reflected the news they consume daily, without knowing if they’ll be easy to digest.
Digestible News or Edible Media is an event for the news-hungry and a metaphoric reflection on press and food.
