The World is a new painting by Paula Scher that is available as a 16-panel set or as a full image over at 20×200.
The World is a painting about information overload. It depicts the world as swirling information that is always changing, often inaccurate, while somewhat illuminating. It is expressionistic information.
You can purchase the full set of 16 prints, or order single panels that will be selected at random and shipped to you. A full one-third of the proceeds will benefit Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
