ISTD 2013, Book Still

The book investigates the concept of information overconsumption.

In the digital age, we are bombarded with vast amounts of information each day. Prior to the introduction of the web, material was harder to source; therefore individuals were more selective over in their consumption of information. This contrast inspired me to investigate the processes of navigation and filtering through information on-screen.

This book represents the day-to-day journey of information consumption that an average person may encounter online. It expresses how a quick look on Facebook or a browse on YouTube can turn into hours of procrastination or overconsumption of immaterial knowledge.
