The Bump™

What does the sun have in store for us next?

The Bump™ is a participatory online show in which a team of journalists – with their audience’s help – promise to uncover really going on, no matter the consequences. The work explores the News’s dependency on its viewership for legitimacy, and the potential for so-called hyperobjects, such as climate change or the internet, to break traditional News narratives and mediatisation. The Bump is a tenacious, shonky, and avowedly off-kilter charge through modern grassroots online news organisations. But if anyone asks, you could say it’s Brass Eye meets Welcome to Night Vale meets (plus something else altogether).
