BOOK OF LIES

The 3 books become 3 constellations of individual ideas flowing into a bigger mind. Ideas, spaced by moments of audio reflection, gather around the glowing lantern. The lantern lightly holds the space of the conversations and scheduled live performances that occur around the dinner table: the source and locus of ideas, exchanges and visions.

 

The blurry boundaries of the lantern are enclosed enough to motivate intimate conversations within it. Yet at the same time permeable and diaphanous, enough to encourage curious minds to wander into the light and participate in an ongoing conversation, or remain as inadvertent voyeurs in the peripheral penumbrae.

“What is the truth that most feeds your life?”

“What is the lie with which you are most complicit?”
