More is more.
Heavy on content, light on meaning, Entertainment System takes a look at contemporary imagination and how nothing seems worthy of our sustained attention.

Passive media consumption and light interactivity: key ingredients of perpetual distraction.

PART 3: HELL. YEAH, SCIENCE?
Our species is doomed. Observe this simple bacteria evolve into our new planetary overlord right before your eyes. Next time, clean the tank.
