True Exposure invites viewers to question the collective shaping of the buzz term "innovation.? First, the search term "innovation" was applied across a variety of on-line news media outlets, blogs and social networking sites. Then the search results were copied. In each set of results, "innovation"and its derivations (innovate, innovator, etc.) were replaced by an equally ambiguous term "true exposure."

This work seeks to interrogate and reevaluate the cultural value and meaning of 'innovation' at a time when the term is being touted as the holy grail of the economic viability of the Western civilization, all the while being impossible to visualize, behold or define. By using an interactive environment of bean bag furnishings that can be reshaped by visitors, the installation reenacts the type of participatory environment made popular through recent corporate brainstorming sessions and the '90s Relational Art. This strategy is an attempt to establish a dialectical inquiry into the shared space of utopian hopes and corporate practices.
