As computers move out of desktops and into the built environment and everyday objects, there is an opportunity to change the shape of news. The Exploring Physical Journalism project aims to understand the possibilities.

This project aims to understand what new forms journalism might take if it was designed for physical interaction. To do this, we will first speak with journalists, news designers and developers about how they approach storytelling.

These people will then be invited to use a journal to speculate on how to do the same thing in locations using technologies such as lights, sensors, objects and projections, among other things.

The insights we gain from this process will be used to develop a concept for how journalism could be designed for physical space and physical interaction. 

The project will run throughout 2019. To find out more, head to the JxD Project website.
