In the age of ubiquitous digital coverage and endless alternative news sources, Turi Munthe presents the profound shifts occurring in the power ⎯ and powerlessness ⎯ of journalism. The films of Yuri Pattison visualise the hidden infrastructure of communication technology, from Google’s server farms to the Hong Kong hotel room that whistle-blower Edward Snowden took sanctuary in after leaving the United States.
