Description

"We Accept The Reality Of The World With Which We're Presented. It's As Simple As That."
-Ed Harris in “The Truman Show” (1998)


 
In the 1998 film the Truman Show, Jim Carrey plays the title character Truman Burbank (true man) who lives an idyllic life in a quaint coastal town that is a cliche of Americana in the 1950’s. A perfect town free of crime, traffic, or unhappy people. Unbeknownst to Truman the town in the largest movie set in the world where his entire life is filmed and broadcasted 24 hours a day as “The Truman Show”. From the womb to adulthood people have followed the adventures of Truman Burbank. From first steps to first kisses, his parents, wife, and friends are all actors. Every experience, every mundane interaction is curated and sold for public consumption by the svengali of this simulated paradise, the director of the show Christof.


 
Are we now at a point in neoliberal capitalism where unlike Truman we ARE aware that we are indeed the brand to be sold. All our interactions are transactions to be bought and sold. Our only value is a market value. The curated experience isn’t a nightmare, it’s the goal.
