ISTD 2013, Book Still
The book investigates the concept of information
overconsumption. In the 21st century, we are
bombarded with vast amounts of information each day
as a consequence of the ever-growing digital age. Prior
to the introduction of the web, material was harder to
source; therefore individuals were more selective over
what information they choose to read. This contrast in
how we read information today as apposed to pre-digital
times inspired me into investigating the processes of
navigation and filtering through information on-screen.
This book is therefore an outcome of my research and
development shown in a publication that represents the
day-to-day journey of information consumption that an
average person may encounter while browsing 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.
