The project addresses the visual aspects of an excess of hypercapitalism and its self-destructive tendencies in a plethora of technology and artifacts.
Overflow is based in cities and their places of transit, the Non-Places of Marc Augé. The images were shot on the infrastructure of the city, places of transit, special eco-nomic zones, malls, hotels, casinos, etc.
I wanted to show these visually oversaturated environments, the continuous flow of people, media devices, LED screens, industrial and computing technology, artificial/man-made nature.
Those images are a mapping of the acceleration in our society through a permanent technological progress. The book is a metaphor for the ubiquity of media devices for the virtualization of reality. Humankind is evolving in a subjective kind of reality that resembles simulation.
