Sara Oppenheimer displays catalogs of different ways which she has observed people folding their newspapers. When the information meets, one side of the paper to the next, new articles are formulated. It is a brief meeting of information, and each new article is secret. If the fold is undone, the new text is destroyed. There is no way to read the remix. All we can tell of the text is the way it was created.
