My project is based around the headlines that show misinformation and how it is communicated to us. We have all different forms of media, and we are constantly being bombarded by others. I placed myself inside of the train because I wanted to visually communicate the frustration that I am going through with all of the different media outputs. I am already as indecisive as can be, so it is hard to tell truths from lies. I included the newspaper boys because they are a visual aid that there was a simple string of communication during influenza.

Having all of the young boys also demonstrates the similarities between our youth and that we are being told differently by different sources. They are passing on all of this information to the public from their news posts. Who knows which post wrote what back then? That shows the similarities between the broken miscommunication. However the difference between today's social media and the 1918 newspapers is extremely large, and I would say that in today's time more than ever, we are constantly being bombarded.
