Tracing Something That Isn't There

@ VOL 5 ON MAR 27, 2014

It may seem impossible to trace something like a memory, a movement, or something that is too large to see all at once. However, Theresa Gooby takes on this idea and develops it into a series that shows what is missing in disused spaces such as an empty apartment, an old shipping port, a crumbling house, and an over 300 mile long river.

Most Successful Fraud in History: William Shakespeare

@ VOL 5 ON MAR 27, 2014

Everyone knows who William Shakespeare is, but are the facts about him true? Barbara Hobens does not think so and in fact denounces him as the true writer of all the infamous classic plays and writings. Rather she gives convincing evidence on how Edward de Vere is likely the Shakespeare we all thought we knew.
