ALIBI  

video stills, 2018

VOICEMAIL MESSAGE:
I want to write your alibi. Begin by describing your day beginning to end. Ultimately, these accounts should reward your own understanding of your life and everyday everyday, so it is up to you how much detail you wish to give. In exchange, I promise to listen and interpret dilligently for the next twenty-one days; returning to you a handwritten document. Thank you, and good-bye.

On November 18th of 2018, a man responded to my Craigslist ad titled: I Want to Write Your Alibi. Following the instruction set forth by my voicemail, he called everyday*, for the next ten days. Our exchange ceased after the evening of November 27th, 2018.

*he called most days and made up for those which he missed.
