Annotation is a performative video poem that started with reflection on a text by French writer Charles Péguy (1873 – 1914). In Oeuvres Posthumes, Péguy says God maybe likes more those who suffer the truth more than those who speak the truth. Péguy wrote that history has long arms and no arms. In the digital age, history is written and rewritten. As we access all of the histories, the truth is sometimes reshuffled.
