INFOTOXICATION

INFOTOXICATION, Infobesity or Information Overload is a concept that describes a state of paralyzation caused by
the excess of data. The question is " How much information we can handle?" or " What kind of changes are we
facing in our perceptions and aesthetics to support the continuous increase of audio-visual information?"
From this starting point, I produced a Video-art work creating an imaginary language based on ideograms.
The same way, the spoken language was created through artificial means (Voice Generator, Vocoder, Audio manipulation)
and presented in a vertiginous pace to create an atmosphere of chaos and claustrophobia.

This work was screened in the New Wave Movie Festival (Hong Kong), Loading Festival Day (Portugal), Refluxo Festival (Brazil), Digital Art Festival (Bulgaria), and Video-Art Forum (Saudi-Arabia), Malabo Film and Music Festival (Guinea)- All in 2019.
