"Overload" reflects the sentiments of the rapid progression of today's society. The New is embraced, with the passing of the Old. These new issues have emerged in response to such a pace, people fret more often than ever; unsure of whether they will able to keep up with society's standards or be left behind as a result.
“Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That's one of my favorite things to say. So what.”
Placing myself in The Ideal imaginary Supermarket, “Overload” depicts the ramifications of rapid progress, when people are “in transit”, juggling social demands and personal needs. Imagine being able to purchase a product that is able to deal with the consequences of our ever-changing society.
What will you buy?
