Information Overload

Have you ever experienced information overload? Perhaps it was when someone was talking to you and they were talking so fast it felt like your head was going to explode. Or, maybe you were surfing the web a little too long and your brain started feeling mushy.

27-year-old Richard Evans created Information Leak to represent information overload in today's society. The typographic artwork appears to be flowing out like tap water in an ordinary kitchen sink. All the letters are hand-painted and laser-cut from wood, then arranged in an appropriate manner to get the flowing effect.

“What I tried to do was visually represent the way information is so easily leaked into today's society, through the Internet and television. Pretty much anything you can imagine, you can get your hands on. With such an abundance of information, I feel as though it over-flows into our lives and the typography is purposefully hard to read to reflect this.” -Richard Evans
