The Truth Shall Set You Free

 

Created and Directed by
Ryan Uzilevsky

 

A projection mapping multimedia piece at the intersection of dance theater, installation, and music video. This original work weaves a narrative about the human struggle between truth and fiction. The story centers on two lovers as they are challenged by society and by each other, to search for the often hidden truths in the age of information. Together they seek to reveal the messages often hidden beneath the surface of our modern world, as information and miss-information overwhelm their senses.

Artist Statement:
As Humanity's ability to access information increases we are faced with some questions: Are we saturating our subconscious with useless information that pulls us out of the present and isolates us from our immediate surroundings? Hard to find pockets of destructive world views have never been so easily accessible, and even thrust upon us and amplified through our networks, how do we improve our mental filters at a speed fast enough to prevent personal and social collapse? What does this over proliferation of information and disinformation reveal about our capacity to control our own sub conscience?

Can the majority of humanity take on the responsibility and maintenance of their own mental filters when the swell of information has reached maximum strength? How do we stay at peace with each other and ourselves? Do we have the tools for this within our post modern circumstance?

While these are all good questions - one must realize that struggling with two opposing worldviews is a necessary tension, we realize that within the cycles of human relationships coming together and moving apart, there is a seemingly infinite energy being generated by this very struggle. It is the very questioning of ourselves and each other that powers human the experience.
