42 Sins Until Midnight (2024)

Vestaboard, Algorithm text generator, Goat hide, Sand

When I arrive, I will not be alive neither will I be dead. The algorithm will offer me my sins and I will make 42 claims of innocence until the night runs out. 


The Vestaboard displays algorithmically generated sins informed by The Negative Confession, an Ancient Egyptian funerary ritual. While existing within this in-between state of life and death, I offer 42 responses to the algorithm’s claims. Each response is marked by an orange ticker.
