'Medium Grind' explores the feedback loop that exists between the news media and events that are reported and represented.   As it is impossible to observe something without changing it, the phenomenon of instant news and live coverage further complicates this cycle as it creates new representations of events before they have finished occurring.   The news media itself is a powerful influencing factor on the very events that it reports upon.   The media spin gets magnified over and over again, feeding back upon itself, making it impossible to determine what caused an event to happen in the first place.   Yet real events, real bullets, and real lives forever get reduced to source material for a brilliant media spectacle.
