Children of Content Nausea.


In an era of infinite scrolling, click-bait titles and periodic content, there is such a thing as too much consumption. We scan articles, become trapped in the cyclical clicking of recommended videos, look away at pop-ups and animated ads. It has ruined the way that we consume information because we no longer recognise or feel the impact of the words in front of us. We are distracted, impatient. We always have a hundred tabs open.

If You're Having A Dark Day...


When you’re standing in darkness, it feels like everything is still. It feels like nothing is changing because everything is motionless, but somewhere in the world it is a different time of day. People are going about their lives, waving goodbye to their children, watching them disappear behind the school gates. Someone is peering at a patient fastened to machines through a glass door. Somebody else is pouring ingredients into a bowl, entranced by an image of a transcendent banana loaf, or standing on a railway track awaiting their own demise. Someone is in a jovial embrace at the airport with an old friend believed to be lost. The earth is orbiting; the birds are flying. This moment is not where you will be stuck forever because we can transcend time. Your life is moving forward. Look at a clock, the seconds are passing. Things will change because they are changing even when we believe that they are still. That object on your desk doesn’t look like it is moving but the seconds are bringing it into the future, and thus it is transcending time just as you are.
