Reference note: The work deliberately frustrates interpretation by obscuring, layering and locking in information. It is not concerned with offering a lucid narrative of the topic at hand, instead it engages with the process of doing archival work and writing history from primary sources which is a fragmented, disjointed, and time-consuming process. Ultimately the work reflects on how historical knowledge is always constructed, unstable, and open to interpretation.
