Jake Tilson describes his work as a crossover of publishing, graphic design, and fine art. His splash page was inspired by the travels he undertook while writing and designing cookbooks. It is a moving collage of photographs from flea markets in Brussels, Paris, and New York. Each photograph shows wares laid out on the ground, shot from above, which forces a shift in the internet user's perspective from horizontal to vertical. Tilson's page focuses attention on commonplace objects as the constant shift between locations reflects the internet's capacity to condense and eliminate physical distance, still something of a novelty in 1998.
