Wikipedia” by artist Rob Matthews is a brilliant way to materialize the Internet back into old media. The “book” features prints of 5,000 pages of Wikipedia’s “Featured Articles”. If Rob were to have the entire Wikipedia printed out, he might have to cut down a few forests just to make the paper. According to his description: “[The project reproduces] Wikipedia in a dysfunctional physical form that helps to question its use as an internet resource.” Excellent project that definitely makes me happy that the web is a immaterial format. Next up, I would like to see the physical version of Amazon.com. Very cool indeed.
