The 'Waiting Wall' has been revealing some British residents' deepest emotional secrets. Those traveling through Brighton train station are able to witness anonymous remarks made by thousands of contributors displayed on a large screen. The project is part of the Brighton Digital Festival, and brings a distinctly personal and humanized element to the celebration of digital technologies.

The inspiration behind the Waiting Wall was to create a modern-day version of Jerusalem's Wailing Wall. The instalment is also a sobering reminder that everyone has problems that they are working through, and that nobody is alone. The Waiting Wall makes the mundane trip through the train station a little more eye-opening and somewhat uplifting for those reading these confessions. The messages vary from marriage troubles to deeply personal secrets.
