In Search Of The Truth (The Truth Booth)
In Search of the Truth is an interactive project comprised of a touring, portable Truth Booth. Iconically shaped like a cartoon speech bubble, it houses a photo booth-like interior that compiles the public’s two-minute video responses as they finish the statement, “The truth is…”.
Throughout this long-term project the video footage will be compiled and edited into a video artwork. To expand and engage with audiences, the movements of The Truth Booth and sample responses will be tracked, edited, and categorized on a website. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to try to capture as many definitions, confessions and thoughts on The Truth as possible, creating a diverse ‘portrait’ of people across the globe.
More information can be found on the project at its dedicated website: INSEARCHOFTHETRUTH.NET
The aim is to reach a broad and diverse range of people and locations in an attempt to represent and celebrate the world’s diversity. Throughout this long-term project the video footage will be compiled and edited into a video installation and dedicated website (coming soon). We want to visit a range of cities in nations that have a broad range of tourism, political action, and far-offness, to reflect the world’s diversity: i.e. South Africa, Australia, Indonesia, China, Cuba, Ukraine, Pakistan, Brazil, Paris, London, Berlin, Egypt, Ethiopia, Senegal, Israel. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to capture as many definitions, confessions and thoughts on “the truth” as possible.
