Typography and confessions

As Art Production Fund Artist-in-Residence, Candy Chang lived in the The Cosmopolitan and turned its P3 Studio gallery into a contemplative experiment around anonymity, vulnerability, and understanding in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Visitors were invited to submit their confessions on wooden plaques in the privacy of confession booths. She hung the anonymous plaques on the gallery walls so they gathered over time like a Shinto Shrine prayer wall. She projected and painted select responses on large canvases. The space featured an original soundtrack by Oliver Blank.
