Summary :
CONSPIRACY OF LIES speaks of the alienation of minorities, of consumer culture, urban isolation and the fine balance between mental order and chaos. The tape begins with a voice (my own) recounting the discovery of a series of diary entries and lists written by an anonymous author. When I found the texts, I assumed the author to be a white, gay man, like myself. Through the use of twelve narrators of different race, gender, religion and sexual orientation, I attempted to destabilize my own subjectivity and challenge my preexisting assumptions regarding difference. The tape begins and ends with two texts written by myself. This, I hope, helps to render the boundary between myself and the anonymous author more fluid, thereby questioning the "authority" of authorship." N.H.
