  • Profiling Truth

    This multi-part media installation is an exercise in using data collection and interpretation to create narratives. In doing so, it makes clear the ways in which reality is skewed by perception and bias. 1) We collected many pieces of "evidence" from Port Authority bus terminal: scraps of paper, audio recordings, video, and physical objects. 2) We asked the public to analyze the data and create a narrative of what they thought may have occurred. This was done in public interventions: at laundromats, classrooms, port authority, and prospect park ; online; and at our gallery show. 3) We each chose one of the narratives that the public had created and made a film based on that narrative.
