OUTNUMBERED, a brief history of imposture is an audiovisual installation by Jasper Rigole that examines the strategies used in making documentaries, Fact Fiction novels and popular scientific equivalents.
The video projection in the first part of the installation shows a camera moving over an old school photograph, using the pan-and-scan effect. This technique is frequently used in documentary films to animate still archival footage. As the camera moves from one face to another, a voice explains who these students are and what their mutual relation is. According to the narration, the boys depicted are historical figures, some well known and others more obscure. They all seem to have a link to imposture.
