Description "Our world is saturated with news. Unceasing torrents of information transport us from battlefields and crime scenes in one moment, to celebrity homes and our own backyards the next. But how does the media's unending flow of words and images shape us? Through an explosive combination of imagery, gesture and sound, Human Interest Story explores our shared consumption of media news, one that punctuates our most domestic spaces and challenges our sympathies for those in distant places. With stunning inventiveness, Lucy Guerin confronts the personal impact of those global crises."
