Historical Context:
"The primary themes of our work are uncertainty, the acquisition of belief, the structure of meaning, the elusive acknowledgment of objective chaos, and the potential in-appositeness of these and other things. In practice, we make things that endeavor to abuse conventions of truth-telling: printed documents for spontaneously generated cultural theories, charts that describe an impossible machine, statements and symbols that undermine the most commonly fundamental assumptions of human thought... It is our suspicion that each alleged truth has an equal alternative, that beliefs long dead are reusable, that things concretely established in the scientific scaffolding are prone to unbidden collapse." -John Castellese
