museum of rumour (2003)

The Museum of Rumour is a fictive work that presents ongoing 'pataphysical research into the study of rumour. It uses a sort of 'gay science' of multiple and contrary theories - from the physics of motion to the theory of six degrees of separation.

In particular the museum charts the uncanny connections of the so-called small world effect by mapping the intersections of rumours through the nodal point of Gertrude Stein, a major figure of rumour.
