Project description

In the last twenty years there has been a revolution in the communication. The mass media is no longer the only one in setting the pace of the current affairs, the audience has stopped being a passive listener to become also a content generator. The consolidation of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) has given voice and visibility to citizens, so that with a tweet, a comment or a like we can publicly give our opinion. The volume of information has exponentially increased, creating enormous amounts of data. This saturation of information, also known as infoxication, does not allow us to fully and clearly understand the news, definitions or other general information that surrounds us. It is deeply complex to discern between so much data, and so, to get a solid and critical opinion. Besides, the citizen is now also required to be more up-to-date for fighting in this post-truth era. My project proposal is to eliminate the need of having to navigate through so many websites, trying to connect the information that is spread all over the network. "Context." Is a tool that collects, organizes and contextualizes information related to an event and/or person, while providing the user with a global vision over the subject. Through its development phase, the current tools for organising information, such as news aggregators, have been analysed. Later on, having the users’ feedback, I am taking it one step further. The designed object ended up being a tablet app and a web version, where the user can access the latest news and meet the chronology and context from each one of them, being able to choose the desired sources. All this information is presented in the same screen, which is reorganized according to the data that appears at any moment, so it is shown in the clearest way possible.
