Everything and nothing

Made from a series of World Book Encyclopaedias, this work compares the ease of ‘Googling’ information to the effort of wading through books. Diderot foresaw a time when there would be so many books, containing so much information, that it would be impossible to find what we seek. Truth or dare is a more contemporary discussion of such information overload – we could find the information in books, but why would we make the effort when we can ‘just Google it’.
