A visual essay on infoxication
Festival of Light of Barcelona
Data on the consumption and generation of information comes as no surprise: while every second sees 6,000 new tweets, 740,741 WhatsApp messages sent and 694 Instagram posts published, new reports tell us that the human attention span gets shorter every year (currently standing at 8 seconds).
We have more information than ever, information which is growing at an unprecedented pace, and we’ve lost our capacity for concentration, attention and analysis. This is the source of an anxiety that translates into apathy and inaction.
These ideas are at the core of Data Heartbreak, an experience that reflects on the importance of data in an era of infoxication. An immersive piece where the digital content we generate is turned into the light of disinformation.
