Seemingly a categorical map of the human world, Currall's Encyclopaedia utilises the database logic at the core of the computer revolution to 'democratise' the dissemination of human knowledge.
Full of mundane wisdom and wit, descriptive, rather than definitive, 'translations' of various concepts, things, places and historical figures are verbally proffered by unidentified people, all of whom have a direct relationship to the artist, such as friend or relative.
Combined with the immediacy and tone of the vox-pop video format, point and click interaction allows the viewer to make associations between subject categories and choose whether to keep listening.
