WORDS: CONFESSIONS







 [All images from Candy Chang]


One of my guilty pleasures every Sunday is waking up late, laying in bed, and opening up my computer to read the latest batch of submissions on Postsecret.  I can't explain why but I love the dual anonymity and familiarity that I experience when reading a perfect stranger's secrets.  Sometimes I sympathize, sometimes I scoff, and sometimes I cry.  Okay, maybe that was a little too much information, but it helps to explain why I am so fond of Candy Chang's "Confessions" art exhibition.  

Located at the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas, Chang's interactive exhibit allows for visitors to air their deepest secrets by anonymously scribbling their confessions on pieces of paper that are then focally displayed on the walls throughout the room.  It still honors to motto of "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" and yet gives everyone the chance to clear their conscious...perfect.  Expectedly, the secrets range in levels of sexuality and humor ("I eat too much cheese" is my personal favorite), which I think makes the concept all the more endearing. Apparently I am not the only one as over 1,500 people participated by the end of Chang's one month stint.  I don't know about you, but I can't think of a better way to share a secret.
