Question notions of the object, of authorship and distribution

To arrange and rearrange information is to personally or administratively produce or document history

Either using real documents, close copies or absolute fakes, information exist to create meaning and commentary inside or beyond context. Truth and evidence may be questioned, but the information is still there. We have entered a culture of choice, emphasizing the importance of availability; how to choose, arrange and use. Distribute. Being an expert means to be confident there is always an easier way to do it, that there is always a more direct confrontation with reality which might yield an interesting spin-off, that there is always the possibility of an incalculable effect, which might turn everything upside down.
