PLGRM decided make a random phone booth into a confessional by encouraging strangers to leave anonymous voicemail secrets, and their responses are fascinating.
"The Hotline" was opened in Melbourne, Australia, and people immediately started revealing their deepest, darkest secrets, from sadistic thoughts...
"Every time I walk past these diseased hookers, and I think they're the scum of the earth. And then I think to myself, I'd like to kill one. And then I think...the other day I've seen this movie, and it was this guy and he was just killing them, and he got away with it for quite a while, and I thought, Well, by the time anyone catches me I'm going to be quite old. Do you know what I mean?"
...to the post-grad loneliness we all feel when moving to a new place.
"I'm from America. I've been here for like a week, trying to find a job, running around like a chicken with its head cut off, because I thought it would be so easy. And I'm just wondering why I'm here. I don't know anybody."
Some even confessed to being in love with their best friends...
"I'd just like to mention that, ummm...that I've always just loved my best mate, like a little bit more than just a best mate, if you will."
...while others were just pissed off by the little things.
"I am definitely cheesed off with my haircut today, and I am absolutely mad as hell. She sorta shaved all my hair off and I didn't want her to do it, and I am very bald and very angry."
But some were able to let go of their burdens if only for a moment...
"I don't think they did anything wrong actually. I remember them being thick as thieves. Your best friend is the best person to have your first sexual experience with."
...and take some time to reflect on humanity as a whole.
"We're getting absorbed in this holographic existence, through the means of the digital world that we're becoming increasingly more detached with each other and detached with ourselves. And I just wonder where it's going to end."
