The Attention Economy

The modern world, with its relentless demands on our attention, is affecting us all. We're increasingly aware of the need to avoid "triggers" for people with a diverse range of conditions - whether that be epilepsy, anxiety or autistic spectrum disorders - but how much do we understand what neuro-typical ("normal") brains need to avoid? The idea of digital detox and greater mindfulness are all booming, but are they actually useful? And do you really have to escape completely from ‘reality’ in order to remain sane? Is it time to go back to basics, or is there a way to balance quality of life needs in the digital bubble? Can artists get the best from social media without being a slave to it? Can you even build and maintain a fanbase in the 2010s without it?
