Disciplinary (but maybe not disciplined) writing

From an ad for an art exhibit at UM:

"The various media reflect and undermine each other's reports, detecting gaps, contradiction and bias in the perception and mediation of the series of encounters which set the trail of records in motion. Together these records form a manifold document that questions the stability of any rendering of such encounters. More Information"

One of the (few) costs of being an economist is not being able to write sentences like these.
