Jasper Rigole

OUTNUMBERED, a brief history of imposture, is an installation from 2009 that generates a moving image using a found panoramic photograph from 1936. The installation is computer-controlled and generates an aleatoric narrative using an extensive database of people who, in some way, are associated with imposture. It is an audiovisual installation that examines the strategies used in making documentaries, Fact Fiction novels and popular scientific equivalents.

The result is an apparently detailed study of the history of falsification.
