The project scrutinises the notions of authenticity and fake, foundational for our digital realm. The website offers insight into and tools to reconsider our relationship to the complex paradoxes of truth production. Introducing users to the various steps the content goes through to become 'true' reveals the digital assembly line that manufactures authenticity. The networks the project highlights span from tracking devices that spread fake news to cyber weapons that engage verified accounts.



The installation represents the contents of the domain machinic.info as physical elements, highlighting the entanglement of digital and material worlds. It turns digital artefacts, central for the website, into physical holograms, welcoming cyber objects into a gallery space. The scroll diagrams the text of the online investigation, revealing the website's infrastructure as relations between its core ideas rather than cables, cords, and wires.
