Media of mass psychology

The media of mass psychology discusses the nature of media and the use of (re)presentation as a key tool for displaying ideas. This body of work is read like a daily newspaper and research project where control is the manifestation of joy, using a combination of stories and headlines, employing the means of text and high impact imagery combined to bring in the largest number of consumers who might want to know current affairs. Every tool of (re)presentation is deployed, including marketing, manipulation and hard-sell tactics. The content (re)presented here doesn’t let the audience choose for themselves but rather suggests the present and next thought. The aim of this project is to discuss the organic conclusion of emotionally charged imagery, innuendos, and dramatic stories.
