From the continual notifications from emails, texts, tweets, and other social media to the never ending next important thing to look up, there isn’t a moment that we are not drowning in a sea of information. There is always more to see, to read, to watch, to learn.

How can we hope to sift through it? When is there time to contemplate and process the information that we already have taken in if we are perpetually taking in more?

What is the consequences of all the readily available private and public information? What become of the information that you set adrift on the sea of information?

Drowning in a Sea of Information explores our new paradigm of information overload.


Drowning in a Sea of Information seeks to present artwork that explores the concept of information overload. A broad approach and interpretation is desired.
