From the exhibition catalog:
“The objects speak of the ethical challenges of new science and of the subtle altering of information to the point that the original truth is lost. They question the location and validity of the line between the highbrow and the lowbrow. They emphasize the power of sentiment and suggest that when we fall prey to nostalgia and all seems perfect, there is probably something amiss. “
