In Search of The Truth

In Search of the Truth, a long-term, public, collaborative Cause Collective project with myself, Ryan Alexiev and Hank Willis Thomas. Our giant inflatable speech-bubble recording booth is travelling the world looking for peoples' truths. So far we've been to Ireland, Afghanistan, Cape Town, Miami, Silicon Valley, Cleveland and a number of places in between.
