rumor has it

people don't know where they heard it but they heard it
william s. burroughs

rumors are short stories with uncertain facts. because of real time distribution and volatility the twitter-platform is perfectly suited for the dissemination of short and instant messages.



in the installation rumor has it a machine collects streams of twitter-feeds that contain the phrase rumor has it in real time and prints it out on adhesive labels of variable length. the visitors of the installation can either cut up and attach these rumor strips to a board in the exhibtion or take them to the streets and stick them to whatver they want.
