We propose a prototype for displaying news media search results on a tablet device. The Infinite Canvas is intended to enrich the search experience by allowing users to take advantage of spatial relationships in a digital environment to understand connections between news articles. We describe how search results can appear along an X and Y axis. We present the results of evaluations of both the initial prototype and a revised prototype with participants using a tablet in order to (i) better understand user interaction through the completion of tasks and (ii) test assumptions regarding the display of search results by time, relevancy and popularity. Participants responded positively to the infinite canvas, and provided various suggestions for future iterations, which we discuss.
