With the lifeblood of the newspaper at threat of disappearing amidst a digital landscape- hurried along by the economic pressures of the current recession, Bone Orchard investigates the nature of the news and the impact it has on daily life. From real and imagined perspectives of the subjects, creators and the audience of the news, Times 365:24:7 negotiates fact and fiction to focus on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the economic global meltdown, and the mainstay of much contemporary journalism, local stories. Returning to the Brick for a second time, Bone Orchard presents another immersive and technological experience that simulates the daily bombardment of the news.
Times 365:24:7 is being developed in collaboration with David Giambusso, a freelance reporter for The New York Times. In addition, company members have interviewed and visited journalists at various news-making institutions, including The Financial Times, Dan Rather Reports, MSNBC, The New Yorker, Marie Claire and CNN.
