THE TRUTH |
The Truth is a virtual reality project which combines the traditional style of hand-drawn images with the multi-dimensional canvas inside the world of virtual reality. It aims to blur the boundary between physical existence and consciousness by constructing a new space to express individuals’ understanding of the world. In other words, what we perceive as reality could also be an illusion. There is neither absolute reality nor absolute fantasy. It might be the fact that we are looking at the images while they are looking at us.

What is being conveyed here is that the truth of something is usually the simplest, purest, within attainable yet quite apt to baffle people. In this scene, when the audience sees the smallest line of text “IT IS A TRUTH”, they tend to distinguish themselves as being more intellectual just because they notice the small word “TRUTH”. However, the large text “TRUTH”, which is far more obvious, is less noticeable. And the ones who can see this are usually labelled as “unconventional” or “eccentric”.
Seen with the naked eyes, we sometimes might be deceived by the so-called truth. As such, within different layers of space on this scene, how could one identify the authenticity of the lens? Who is the one on the other side of the lens transmit the information?
I’ve designed a simple maze here, which directs the audience into different corners whenever they bump into the “eyes”. In each iris, there is original footage which includes the various mundane activities of a human. What I would like to express here is that everything is inter-twining and no single matter is the absolute reality. Rather, every segment could be its own separate universe.
