It runs badly on the web, so I've provided a .zip that you can run.
today's news utilizes the New York Times’ XML feeds to create new images, headlines and color schemes based on the current news. Headlines are generated via a Markov Chain algorithm built into the RiTA text-processing library. ‘Markov’ images are created by sampling a fraction of each image and recompiling it into a whole. Background colors palettes are created by taking color samples from each of the major images on the front page. The result is an ever changing composition- sometimes oddly meaningful, sometimes absurd- that is both generated by the artist in collaboration with the machine, via algorithm, and yet more importantly, by the data itself. The result is inherently political and yet entirely without prejudice.
