“I/O Interface Overbloated”, 2005

We are living a transition period. Conventional media has mutated into something which strives to fit in the massive amount of digital data into its limited analogue space. “I/O Interface Overbloated” exposes the bottleneck condition in which new digital data try to flow through the television screen. The struggle between the narrated news and visual data feed creates bizarre conditions and undefined zones for the viewer/data receiver. The conventional TV screen is encapsulated by the new data forcing to find a way to flow.
