With every issue comes conflict, and with every opinion that is voiced, the earlier opinions are drowned out. That is what this interactive art pieces tries to visually emulate. After recording many real opinions during a topic of conflict, they are transcribed and show up on a virtual page. Every time one clicks on the page, a new opinion comes up with the most recent one in black. After time, those that were shown earliest fade and become lighter in color while the newest statements pop up in dark colors. Slowly, it is easy to see the clutter that forms from all these opinions and soon, it is hard to make anything out.
