In Search of the Truth

Everyone has their version of The Truth. What is yours? “In Search of the Truth” is 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. As part of the Downtown STL Public Art Initiative, the Regional Arts Commission is excited to announce “In Search of the Truth,” aka “The Truth Booth,” will be touring Downtown St. Louis for three days in October. Inside the speech 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. View past videos at http://insearchofthetruth.net/. "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. The project is a collaboration 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
