a Studio release
King Bathmat

Release Year: 2012

Date Label Catalog # Comments

From the artist's web site:


"Truth Button deals with an underlying theme of technophobia and social disconnection due to the evergrowing trivial use of modern technology.  Truth Button calls for the advancement of technology to be employed to make the truth more transparent as opposed to it being exploited to confuse, convulute and restrict us. The press-button, a mechanical switch that engages us in a process, is a symbol of technology, we live amongst an ever increasing complex web of button pushing gizmo's and gadgets. These devices encourage us to interact with them for increasingly irrelevant reasons. Time absorbed by these inconsequential activities produced by these new technologies could be put to better use and it seems that these toys are deliberately created to distract us from events that unravel in the world today. Yet, if we had the choice of a Truth Button, would we push it? Would we choose to address the ugly truth or alternatively, would we continue to live in ignorance within a beautiful illusion?"
