i think artists make art because they have no choice, really, and faking parts of the documentation becomes authentic in this  corrective process.

The drawings were presented as concept or proposal drawing even though they were done after the work was made.  Actually I find that this is a traditional practice among artists. You start a painting or sculpture and then make drawings as you go along. It's a way of exploring the way you think.  I have always found that being an artists is directly contradictory to the bureaucratic systems that demand for any grant or exhibition  that you present a clear proposal of what you intend to do.  Most of the time an artist makes art because they are exploring and discovering new paths of perception. It's not about product.  This of course is the opposite of a commercial market that demands product.
