The exhibition is a collection of critical projects, both films and objects talking about social phenomena, becoming a specific manifest presenting our contemporary approach to life.

When we finally believed that we have everything and we can do anything and wanting more is our guiding principle (both in relation to the objects around us and interpersonal relations) we have become an overloaded, self-sufficient desert island.

We are tired, numbed and irritated by the multitude of stimuli; as if our internal system has hung up. We can’t predict and plan, we get lost in the signals surrounding us and we lose the sense of touch. Is overloading a real mistake or maybe a natural part of the process?
