In Search of the Truth
The Cause Collective
434 people pledged $80,628 to support this project on Kickstarter
In the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election, the Cause Collective used Kickstarter to rally a community of supporters to help them bring their “Truth Booth” to more than 30 U.S. states. Members of the public were invited to step inside the inflatable video-recording booth, shaped like a giant speech bubble, and record short testimonials inspired by the phrase, “The truth is.” Thousands of people participated, generating a vast archive of personal thoughts, dreams, hopes, and fears — as well as a collective portrait of the American consciousness at a pivotal moment in history. Over the next several years, the project will travel to communities around the world, collecting even more diverse and intimate perspectives on the truth.
