Overload.Love is an interactive installation that explores how digital technology carries biosignals and emotional experiences. The program is fueled by the heartbeat data of the participants, resulting in the emergence of figures that collide with one another. As these figures multiply, they intensify the computational strain on the device, leading to program slowdowns and glitches. This intentional overload serves as a grotesque metaphor for the chaotic and irrepressible nature of love.
