More > mind-boggling vastness of the universe as it's pitted against the frail soul of a human. Earth, according to the Mythos, was once ruled by extra-dimensional "Elder Things" - also referred to as "Great Old Ones." These beings will again rule the planet. Part of the awesomeness of Lovecraft's work is not what is said, but what is referred to. The unfathomable nature of the outer and inner spaces occupied by the Old Ones amps up the scary factor - that and the fact that there's nothing that humans can do to sway the laws of the universe out of their control.

Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
