Truth is a complex construct out of objective Facts and subjective Perceptions. It depends on the point of view, which is distinctly recognizable in urban spaces: Every city consists of borders – wether social, religious, political or physical. Visible or invisible, borders dominate the urban space and its interaction within it. They cause opinions while the accumulation of opinions in turn create new divisions. Various social media cover these filtered perspectives within a city and affect our subjective perception in different ways.
By using different social media contents and voices from the city, the installation conveys an impression of the complexity of truth, and the concentrated visible and invisible borders in the urban space of Jerusalem.
