How might we know and represent non-coherent realities? Using the example of the UK's 2001 outbreak of foot and mouth disease, this chapter juxtaposes a patchwork of not particularly consistent narratives and descriptions of the epidemic and its consequences, before arraying them visually on a pinboard in a way that respects both their relations and their mutual irreducibility.
