Known for his groundbreaking use of technology, Alexander’s new work delves into what it means to be human in the era of big data.

Overflow features a dazzling kinetic light sculpture by Children of the Light with creative technologists Fenyce and lighting designer Guy Hoare, costumes by award winning designer Ana Rajcevic and an original score by Rival Consoles.

Overflow considers how the drive to turn everything into data impacts on human subjectivity.

“The mounting pile of data does nothing to answer the simple question ‘Who am I?’”
