Project Description

A ‘moment of truth’ is a critical or decisive time, at which one is put to the ultimate test. . .

Here to inform and connect creative based individuals and businesses around the globe.

This project, ‘moments of truth,’ began as a step toward generating a method to life focused on contributing creative efforts to society. The title for this project found inspiration by a phrase often uttered in the Fort Mason printing studio by printmakers I looked up to. Arrival of the crucial moment would be declared just prior to kissing inked plate to paper through the press.

So I set out on the road to find people living their daily life in a creative focused fashion and ask them some questions. These questions were those I imagined could help inspire others as well as myself. What have you always wanted to ask your favorite creative individual? What is it to be creative? What drives us human beings to create something new and different, altering our surroundings? What am I missing? Obviously this is a work in progress with anticipation of others contributions via comments, messages, suggestions and anything else that may arise.

If you can put me in contact with someone you think has some creative things going on and they’d like to share, I’d love to interview them. Post a comment or shoot an email to momentsoftruth.wordpress@gmail.com.

Stage 1:
To challenge myself on this pilgrimage of sorts, I set the restriction to travel with only what can be carried while touring on a Honda Nighthawk motorcycle. You know, the most basic supposed essentials: sleeping bag, socks and draws, tools, the digital recorder, some paper, colored pencils, etc. The next five month leg of this tour will take place on the west coast from Seattle, through Oregon, California, down to Oaxaca, Mexico.
*(Note, Stage 1 travel has been completed; that is, Andrew Crum managed to spend 9 months out of 12 getting lost in the landscape of Northern America Continent)

Stage 2:
Asia
Currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
