Quote from Alexander Whitley

Overflow was created in 2019, well before the Covid pandemic struck, but its themes seem even more pertinent to the world we now live in. National lockdowns have resulted in a dramatic and irreversible paradigm shift, with the use of digital technology by citizens, organisations and businesses soaring globally. At the same time, we have been witnessing moral panic and extremist politics surge amongst an overabundance of information and disinformation circulating through these platforms, with a growing awareness of the impacts they are having on our thoughts, behaviour and actions in the world. Poised between an overexcited human emotionality and the all-seeing eye of big data, Overflow probes this newly defined human condition, holding a space of tension between hope and tragedy and leaving us to consider where our future lies as our relationship with technology becomes ever more enmeshed.
