In Search of The Truth

Everyone has their version of the truth. What is yours?

Produced by the City of Sydney

A video booth that has travelled throughout the USA and other countries now invites Sydneysiders to share their ideas about the truth, as part of the artwork’s Australian debut.

Shaped like a cartoon speech bubble on the outside, and resembling a photo booth on the inside, The Truth Booth is a giant video recording booth travelling the world In Search of The Truth.

The brainchild of the Cause Collective, you’re invited to enter the booth and record your opinions and thoughts while completing the statement “the truth is…”.

Videos from the booth will be compiled and shared on the project’s website.

Established in 2011, the project has already travelled to Ireland, Afghanistan, South Africa and a 50-state tour around the United States. Before the 2016 US election, the booth gave people a platform to speak their ‘truths’ during one of the most important political periods in American history.

Ultimately, the goal of this project is to capture as many definitions, confessions and thoughts on “the truth” as possible.

So, step inside The Truth Booth and add your voice to a global conversation on truth.
