In the above, captured on April 18th, 2013, CNN cites Mitt Romney as a suspect in the Boston Marathon Bombing.
We’ve added a new category here at Roosterhouse Ideas called “Screen Stills”. The above CNN television screen capture is a good example of what this category is like. Moments are captured from moving media like an internet page or a television, even a radio blip incongruity. The idea behind this category is capturing events that only exist for a moment in our consciousness, sort of like photography except for events that are inherently unreal i.e. the image on tv screen or the blur of a vhs tape.
Information is being communicated at different speeds. By slowing things down or halting it completely, a different message can reveal itself.
My friend, who wishes to remain unnamed, took the above photo.
