SOTOAS (Symbol Of Truth Of A Seed) is a group-designed fictitious truth-based community where truth is visible in the form of symbols, language or pictographs through eating a seed. Truth is the governing principle, foundation and center of the community. The banners, booklets and seeds are showcased in the atrium of the city to invite and educate the visitor to know truth. The wayfinding cards depict a map of the truth community. The map is designed to be intuited by personal choice or chance. The paths lead to the center of the community and reveal the answers to a survey: “What is truth to you? If everything that is experienced and felt is revealed as symbols of truth, how would that change your definition or experience of truth?
