Notes:
"There are hints at a story; seven murders have taken place and an archaeologist, Mr Emerson, is on the trail of the killer ... He plays with the idea of an archaeologist digging through time--but with his horizons focused on solving the murder mystery--setting beside this the juxtapositions of his collages and making references to bogus systems and series which paradoy scientific investigations. It's an Alice in Wonderland logic, in which the gaps play a crucial part. The more facts we think we have, the less we actually discover."--Cathy Courtney, Art Monthly.
