Stack Overflow

Stack overflow is a video installation featuring a sculpture, animation, and video mapping. My goal is to discuss the relationship between the physical and metaphysical and how we, as humans, react to our contemporary society’s information overload. The three-dimensional cloud represents the space in between where information from our environment and our minds collide. The colorful textured 3d-rendered balls allude to the irresistible; something beautiful in disguise that may be more disturbing or violent underneath its surface. It shows the overloading chaos of data and information that is conjoined with our own state of being. Stack overflow has three parts: how information is received, how we interpret it, and how data overwhelms our minds since the reaction to data is part of the data itself. The longer the video plays, the more the virtual takes over, and the more it reverts to its simple state: data.
