EXHIBITIONS & INSTALLATIONS
A data visualisation art installation on press freedom in 180 countries
28-30 September, 9AM-10PM EET
The Reporters Without Borders' Global Press Freedom Index 2023 serves as a starting point for an original installation presented at iMEdD International Journalism Forum, capturing the state of journalism in 180 countries around the world in a physical space.
Each column represents a country and its position in the space reflects the ability of journalists in that country to report without political and economic interference.
The height of each column represents each country's ranking on the press freedom index. The higher the column, the better the country's ranking.
Visitors can compare countries against each other by selecting the ones they wish to illuminate using a specially designed electrical control panel.
