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.
