Twenty Lies is an experiment in interface design that encourages and triggers viewers’ physical engagement different from how they may interact with a typical artwork. Using an already existing public Smart screen location, the viewers are presented with twenty PVC tubes coming out of a slot that is designed for a keyboard. Each tube is connected to a speaker that plays children’s songs from Korea about being honest and diligent, which is barely audible unless the viewer picks up the tube and puts close to her or his ear. This interaction triggers a specific video on the projection screen via a photoresistor inside each tube.
