“I don’t keep any secrets”….”I am an open book”.
Secrets kept from others. Lies you tell yourself to keep on going. We all do it- and we all deny it. Powerful stuff. Between the idea and the reality falls the shadow- but interesting things can hide in dark places, no? Opening the book of personal dilemma that is Postsecret allows you to remember the thousand coloured veils of denial, aversion, self sacrifice, bravery and despair that everyone tries to hide in tightly grasped hands held tightly behind their backs. It’s magical to see them unfolded and proudly displayed in the light.
PostSecret is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website, or used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits.
