Everyone Thinks the Same Thought is a glowing, architectural installation, in which a single thought is distributed using sound, video, text and performance. Inside the freestanding walls, surrounded by projections, screens and speakers, audiences will be enticed to experience a thought together. Every few minutes the installation will reset and a new thought will pulse through the structure.
Surreal, comic and retro-futuristic, the installation is nonetheless of the moment. We have arrived at a future, after all, in which individual thought is unnervingly malleable. Lulled by media and mesmerized by social technologies that shape our collective behavior, are we becoming more ‘me’, or more ‘we’?
