Tell Your Mother What You Did;
Paper Users' Confessional


The 2'x4.5'x5.5' booth is made of a minimal wooden frame covered with papier maché. People are asked to remove their shoes, enter through the velvet curtain, kneel on a velvet cushion, open a little door, and hear a priestess berating them and inviting them to confess. The participant then has an opportunity to confess and finally receive a penance.
