The Confession Machine

The Confession Machine, commissioned by Artists’ Residence Herzelya, January 2014.

The Confession Machine prints online texts that fade away as time passes, just like the confession itself. The machine prints on a surface painted with an ultra violate sensitive pigment. While passing over the surface, it turns on and off 16 UV LEDs in a carefully timed sequence, temporarily creating dots and dashes on the surface. Those are added into letters, words and sentences. The intimate and revealing printed texts are taken from social networks, showing the lightness of confessions via online channels today.
