This artist book combines the conventions of a botanical encyclopedia with the contemporary reference system of Wikipedia. Anatomical drawings of plants, in combination with text and hyperlinks, connect together different information and eventually reveal the answer to the question: "Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?". The accordion style structure of the bookwork allows it to be read page by page or it can be fully extended to 12 ½ feet to illuminate an intricate web of visual and textual information.
