Truth Booth: In Search of the Truth

Everyone has their version of The Truth. What is yours?

Join us for “In Search of the Truth,” a global, interactive public art installation that asks participants to share their Truth in a recording booth inside a 16-foot-high, iconic, inflatable speech bubble. This special event is being hosted in Downtown St. Louis for only three days on October 17, 18, and 19.

Inside the bubble lives a video recording booth where the public can record two-minute-long videos completing the statement, “The Truth is …” The videos are selected, edited, compiled, and filed on the website. Learn more at http://racstl.org/truth.

“In Search of the Truth” aims to represent and celebrate the world’s diverse people, cultures, and locations and capture as many definitions, representations, confessions, and thoughts on “The Truth” as possible.

It is a collaborative project created by Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, and Hank Willis Thomas, all members of Cause Collective. “In Search of the Truth” has toured the United States, Ireland, Afghanistan, and Mexico extensively and been to locations in South Africa and Australia.

“In Search of the Truth” is part of the Downtown STL Public Art Initiative, a partnership among the Regional Arts Commission, Downtown STL, Inc., and Explore St. Louis. Learn more about the Downtown STL Public Art Initiative at http://go.racstl.org/DowntownPublicArt.
