the accent of truth
“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth” – Marcus Aurelius
There are many theories and philosophies debating and exploring what the concept of Truth is and what it means. Regarding our backgrounds and circumstances among many other influential factors our Truth is an individually shaped interpretation of our understanding of a particular situation.
The Accent of Truth is an editorial piece that explores the nature of truth and looks at its relevance in today’s world. Using the mythological Greek story of Sisyphus, who as punishment rolled a stone up the mountain for eternity, this timeless story contains many universal and metaphorical messages.
An editorial containing three sections has been designed; The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus, Discordianism and Philosophy of Logic, which explore philosophical theories on truth in order to show how fragile the perception of Truth can be.
As a reference to the multidimensional, multilayered and complex nature of truth, this piece unveils various page sizes and paper stocks, which represents Truth’s ambiguous and subjective nature. Each philosophical view is represented by a significant fluorescent colour as reference to their bold, unique and powerful meaning. The repetition of the crossed out Omega symbol represents never-ending work.
