A counterfeit 1944 first edition copy of Jorge Luis Borges' seminal collection of short fiction Ficciones, with a forged story by Borges inserted within its pages. A character suffers from apophenia, the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena. A perpetual search for patterns in newspaper images and the sound of white noise on the radio. A meditation on the entanglements between image, text, and the experience of reality itself. Counterfeit book production by Hazel Mandujano, with a translation by Gala Porras-Kim.
