The experience of dishevelment is all about distance: the distance between truth and reality; between lies and facts; between inscriptions and images; between news and incidents; between the orderliness of production and the disarray after consumption; about the distance between man and man; about a kind of complication; the habit resulting from repetition; about an abstract form of life; about numbers.
