Reading about how Sophie Calle creates art with the interaction of the public. I feel her work is almost like she is conducting a public service being that everyone who speaks to her feel relieved from their suffering. Being that the people who participate get to lay their secrets to rest once they talk with out with Calle. All the secrets are out in the open and the people are no longer suffering I feel is an amazing play on words that she does with the sculpture with "Here Lie the Secrets of The Visitors of Green-Wood Cemetery". Her work I feel serves a purpose to create a meaningful piece of work but to also relieve people of these deep dark secrets that may be holding them back. I enjoyed reading this article and seeing how talking to someone as if they were like a therapist could cause so much relief so quickly while also creating a beautiful, purposeful piece of art.
