‘In Search of the Truth’ is an interactive project featuring The Truth Booth, an inflatable portable public sculpture of an iconic, 15-foot-high speech bubble. Inside the booth participants are invited to make a 2-minute-long video finishing the open-ended sentence “The Truth is…” The resulting videos will be compiled, edited, and accessible at truthbooth.com. 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.
“This project is not only a public art tour, a website, and a documentary video project—the Truth Booth is also a generosity project,” explains Cause Collective co-founder Hank Willis Thomas. “The goal is to provide Americans with a safe space to share their thoughts, ideas, dreams . . . or anything that inspires them.”
This free event is one part of a four stop tour. The tour has been generously supported by the The Educational Foundation of the Arts (theefa.org). Dates, organizations, and towns included are:
