The artists in In/Formation employ widely varying media and representational approaches to examine the radically changing nature of information systems and vehicles in the digital era. Leslie Alfin, Louisa Bufardeci, [dNASAb], Penelope Umbrico, and Ward Shelley present works that express the effects of information overload brought about by such rapidly transforming websites Google and Wikipedia. In the current environment, information is ubiquitous but not necessarily stable or even accurate. Rather, it is literally in formation—relentlessly growing in quantity and endlessly mutable.
