Roberto Cigna / Fishing for knowledge

View Portfolio

Roberto Cigna’s illustration of a woman fishing in a pond of books was inspired by an article in Quartz magazine on how much time we spend on social media and watching television.

According to the article, we could each read 200 books instead of, on average, the 608 hours we devote to social media and the 1642 hours we watch TV.

The illustrator, in his conceptual illustration, asks us to look inside our literature, our history, and the culture itself, by reading instead.
