Kevin Griffith, Professor of English at Capital University, and his son Sebastian first envisioned translating David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest into Legos after reading The Brick Bible, by Brendan Powell Smith. Wallace's novel is probably the only contemporary text to offer a similar challenge to artists working in the medium of Lego. The artist in this case was Griffith's eleven-year-old son, Sebastian, who created all the scenes based on his father's descriptions of the relevant pages.
The edition of Infinite Jest used for this project is the Tenth Anniversary paperback edition, published in 2006.
The creators of this site neither expect nor intend to make money on this project.
Well there goes talking to my family tonight.
