World-renowned film director Mike Figgis combines online anonymity, digital imagery and art therapy in the 'Just Tell the Truth' project. The online secret-revealing series is part of the Deloitte Ignite Festival, which celebrates contemporary art and is curated by Figgis this year.

Similar to PostSecret, the 'Just Tell the Truth' project invites strangers to send in their hidden thoughts, desires, and hopes -- either funny, serious, or sad, as long as they are honest. What separates Figgis' concept from other anonymous confession sites is the accessibility of the project, which allows people to create their confession pictures in seconds. Using a collection of images from talented Rise photographers, visitors to the site can quickly add words to the photo of their choice, and see it uploaded to the site instantly.

The secrets found in the 'Just Tell the Truth' collection are inspiring, heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud-worthy. Check out the ongoing project, and submit your own confessions to the Mike Figgis curated project. Stats for Curated Digital Confessions Trending: Older & Mild
