Sex Worker, Truth & Archetype, is a documentary media installation that explores the personal lives of sex workers through film and photography. The exhibit challenges society's perception of a sex worker by documenting a worker's reality through intimate video interviews and manipulated photographs that depict each sex worker’s fantasy of self, how sex workers see themselves through basically any personification of culture, morals, values and mythology. To empower witnesses, and ensure the exhibition accurately expresses each sex worker's truth, the documentary used an open-consent form that allowed each witness to vett the audiovisual content that represents them. A soundscape installation explores the inner complexities of the body and mind. By examining stereotype and myth against each worker's truth and archetype, the exhibit challenges the public to redefine who or what is a sex worker.
