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.
