EL GATO –news truck– is a mobile open-ended media system. An outlet and prototype machine servicing printed materials refusing extinction. By adhering to low run numbers and select interest groups, EG is able to control all aspects of publishing in the constrained 24 hr. time frame of the usual newsprint cycle. More than
a daily paper it is a rolling conversation, trafficking information exchange between casually connected communities. A sort of documentary in print. By activating a temporal printed piece –the newspaper– through a mobile infrastructure –a news truck– we aim to create a platform that re-thinks the relationship between information, its receiver, publisher and audiences.
