Psst! Do you want to know a secret!

How cool is this concept? We all love to hear a secret but keeping it so, isn't quite so easy. Thanks to Designer Florian Brillet's newest amalgamation of the main points of secrecy: the public, and the secret itself, we don't have to spill the beans, it does if for us. In Brillet’s “Secret” project the secrets are told to the public poles, and the public poles tell the secrets back to the public. Once the secret is separate from the teller, it becomes public property. The concept of public secrets is not a new one. The art project “Post Secret” by Frank Warren is one of the more popular ideations of the public secret concept. Due in part to the hive mind, in the more mystical sense, (that we all discover concepts together as one people,) Florian Brillet designed “Secret” in Paris, France. The secrets are collected by the poles, then are spoken by the same poles.
