encyclopedia wikipedia by michael mandiberg





we kindda like the idea of having all these white books on our book shelves. this is the entire english language wikipedia in 7,600 volumes. generated by software, and created by artist michael mandiberg and available for $500,000. print wikipedia is less of a practical tool and more of an artistic observation of the largest accumulation of human knowledge. it is a poetic gesture towards the futility of the scale of big data that has become such an important part of our daily lives. pretty cool. by dd
