This piece examines the invisible invasions we all live with in this media driven, online obsessed world we are living in. How much control do we have on what is imprinting on us, how is this overloading us and what is seeping in, unconsciously or consciously, interrupting our human interactions and relationships, causing growth or destruction?

“If you think that you are suffering from information overload you may be right – a new study shows everyone is bombarded by the equivalent of 174 newspapers of data a day” – The Telegraph 2016
