A Little History of the 2000s 2012
hand-made accordion book with pen drawings

Funded by the Pauline and Irving Tanner Dean Scholars program, this accordion-style book chronicles the first decade of the new millennium, often creating startling and playful juxtapositions between the historical and the pop cultural: Al Gore’s beloved polar bears offer Coca-Cola to the Y2K bug while Kim Jong-il listens to an iPod; meanwhile, Harry Potter dives for the housing bubble and Mark Zuckerberg’s new “social norms” acquire new meaning when he’s surrounded by evil dictators.
