Authoring Systems & the Art They Wrought

  • Nell Tenhaaf's believable, if not always true
  • Videotex Database (1986)
  • Installation (1987)

This is another database exploration of truth value. The user goes down five different dead-ending pathways that are tinged with myth and quasi-science (with citations), all of which is compelling in its own way. Everything is very much coloured by my strong feminist leanings, so if the user didn’t want to go there then they were pretty much left with iffy egyptology.
