The digital world is everywhere and the media tries to show us the advantages and also the danger, as in “big data” and “cookies”. We know of these words but we don't necessarily understand what they mean. This makes us feel distant from the complex digital world.

To relate as a human being to this world, together with Mats Horbach, Anne Ligtenberg has created a human digital encyclopedia. Every word receives a relevant definition and a visual explanation by use of 140 characters. By doing this, Anne and Mats create more context and build a bridge towards the digital world. 

This is a ongoing project, the collection will continue to grow.
