A safe space in which secrets can be shared in complete anonymity; a place to free guilt, cleanse the soul and unburden the mind: what would you confess?
That’s the question at the heart of an online global arts engagement project. The project is a response to concerns about the effect lockdown is having on our mental health and wellbeing, as the world copes with the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Created by Audacious – the producers of the annual Light Up Poole festival of digital light art – Confessions is a digital gallery of admissions by people from all over the world.
On arrival, you will encounter a 360-degree panoramic screen that you will be able to investigate before choosing to submit a confession for review or continue exploring and return later. By clicking return you will journey through a riot of psychedelic colours and sounds that resolves into the confessions gallery. Here you can read what other people have admitted to.
Confessions has been designed and created by artist Ashley Wilkie who specialises in digital light installations. The project has been made possible with funding from Arts Council England’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund.
So, what secret would you share?
