It is not just the fields, roads, and houses in England and Wales that are flooding. There is a flood in the virtual world that we also inhabit. That flood is from the massive explosion in data.
This made me think about images of flooding and using them to convey that data is also flooding. Here is my first image showing debris in the River Leam. I would like to add a layer to denote data going down the river as an allusion to information overload. Alternatively I could use the image as a backdrop to some statistics about the data flood. For example, 294 billion emails are sent each day (The Radicati Group, “Email Statistics Report, 2010-2014,” April 2010.)
