400 Lies and 1 Truth About Me

Peter Kingstone

2003, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


This video is simply text: a long list of 400 things that are lies and only 1 truth hidden amongst the 401 statements. It is an experiment. Can one tell more about me by the lies that I tell, than by the truths? To avoid this discovery, the video has been sped up so it is difficult to read all 401 lines and the viewer can only catch a few as they fly by.
