What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?

Candy Chang :: Confessions. New Orleans-based artist Candy Chang gives people a chance to confess thoughts without having to feel vulnerable to the outside world. Her installation, entitled Confessions, is a public art project at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This project seeks to create a cathartic sanctuary for this temporary community can help us see we are not alone in our quirks, experiences, and struggles as we try to lead fulfilling lives.” Chang’s website

For one month, Chang lived in Vegas and turned the P3 Studio Gallery into an interactive exhibit. Visitors could stop by, enter a booth, write whatever thoughts they wanted to share, and drop the confession into a box that mixed anonymously with other slips. Chang then took the anonymous slips and displayed them on wooden wall plaques, and painting selected responses onto large red canvases.
