Noise. Speed. Words. Images. We live in a digital era, constantly exposed to a massive stream of information, which we believe is vital to our daily lives.

Turn on the television and commentators warn us of the threats in the world. Turn on the computer, stream a news conference with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in which he outlines what Japan needs to do to survive. Our phones aren't used so much for calling as for staying logged in to the stream.

When was the last time you took a moment to block out all of the noise and think about the things that are truly important? What gets forgotten in the chaos of everyday life? Have you lost anything amid this whirlwind of information? These are the questions that this year's Yokohama Triennale is attempting to address.
